War can be defined as an organized and
prolonged conflict carried out by states or non state actors. It is
characterized by violence social and economical disruption. It is considered to
be an inescapable and integral human nature aspect. War has very great impact
to the entire world. It impacts the social, economy and other aspect of human
that facilitate the comfort of human being. It has effect on the elderly
people, middle aged, young people and the children.
Children are greatly affected by war
because when they survive they have a longer time to live and give their
experience to the generations that will follow after them. They will have a
chance to communicate the negative effects of war based on the experience they
had during the time of war. Some of the things they will remember are brutal
murder of people, destruction of properties among other things.
Besides remembering the children will be
affected in some other ways. War has an economical effect on children where the
children’s education is being disrupted (Dupuy, and Peters, 2010). Considering
education to be one of the best weapons against poverty to people that make up
a state or a country, the affected children and the affected generation will
face a problem after industries and infrastructures have been destroyed. This
will make the generation to be economically affected.
Children will be psychologically
affected. This is due to the psychological and emotional trauma that is caused
by war has negative effect to the children for example, the First World War
soldiers suffered a lot from the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and yet they
were adult (Barber, 2009). This is an implication that the children will be
Children are confronted with physical
harm, fear and loss. Witnessing the death of their loved ones affects them
psychologically and they are exposed to the state of desperation. They feel
insecure during the time of war. Then after the period of war the children will
lose trust and confidence in future. They will find it very hard to build trust
on other people that affecting their social life. They become anxious and
depressed making them to withdraw from the social life and become aggressive.
This makes the children not to develop their full potential hence affecting
War has some impacts on children too.
War leave very many children disabled this because children cannot access the
healthcare during the time or war and not all the children will be lucky to be
saved by the assisting organization like the Red Cross. War has moral and
spiritual impact on children making them to suffer the loss of their
construction meaning (Fernando, and Ferrari, 2013). This contributes a
lot to the children changing their moral structure to start stealing, lying and
selling sex to survive.
Preventing war and making the world a
better place for all the inhabitants not only creates a good relation among the
people but assures the world a better future world. The children in all
ways will have a great time developing their being and providing a world with
morally upright people. It again gives an assurance of a productive future
world without economical rebuilding but economical development. The future of
the world depends on the young and not the old and if the children are exposed
to war the future of the world will be at risk.
