There are many children who live in the bush country who have to deal with the “darker” side of life at a very early age.
Notice the necklaces that adorn many of these children. I learned that these necklaces are a sign of “belonging” to witchcraft. At an early age, these tokens are put on the unsuspecting children with a warning from the witchdoctor that curses wait for all who dare to remove them. They are then trapped as long as the fear of the “darker side” remains. The only hope they have is for someone to show them a greater power than that of the witchdoctor.
