The children of Rosenblatt's book, "The Children of War" were either victims themselves or they lost a relative to the war. Elizabeth, a young girl from Ireland, said she hadn't lost her faith in God but she lost her faith in man. Hawda, a Lebanese girl, was in the hospital because shrapnel had slit her stomach open. When asked, Hawda told Rosenblatt that all people are good. What happened she said was God's will and God never wants people to kill.
