These drawings are based on testimony Myrrh heard from refugees that her Quaker Meeting helped in the 1980s. When she showed them the drawings, several said, "I've seen even worse." One woman said, "The soldiers didn't look like that, most were just muchachos, boys." Child soldiers, forcibly inducted. But two friends said it was also more hopeful than that, leading Myrrh to make two more drawings at the end. The last one is based on an actual photo of peasants reclaiming their lands in the midst of a conflict zone. "They had gotten past being afraid," her friend said.
