“A child is born with no state of mind
Blind to the ways of mankind.”
Quote from Rapper Grand Master Flash
This quote related to the book A Long Way Gone, because in the book children live such different life style than we do in America. They are free to roam throughout towns without telling anyone where they are going. They also are a really poor country and the children are born without a chance for education. They wakeup to crime and war. Infants are born in crime and war.
“God is smiling on you but he's frowning too
Because only God knows what youâ€™ll go through.”
QUOTE FROM Rapper Grand Master Flash
This quote also relates to the book in the same way. Children are born into war and and lack of food. Most people can't relate because they don't have to live in the same environment and wakeup starving like the children do in the book A Long Way Gone.
