    I think Chema Caballero is a good man. He is tall, he has got black hair, he also has a beard and brown eyes.
    What I liked was as he spoke about their moments of tension in Sierra Leone. It must be very difficult to live a few years in a country like Sierra Leone. I liked very much the conference.

    I liked more the conference of Ramon Lobo. It was more entertaining.
    The two have worked in poor countries and with people accustomed to war.
    The differences are that Ramon Lobo is a journalist and Chema Caballero is a graduate in Law and Ecclesiastical Studies.

    ———————————————————————-
    I think that was a very good talk because we learnt a lot about the exportation items in many different countries and about soldier children.
    I think the most interesting fact was what they did with the children after they picked them up.
    The thing that surprised me was that the rebels exchanged the children for rice, and that’s a very cruel thing because it’s like comparing rice to children.

    Well, I think there are very big differences between Ramon Lobo and Chema Caballero.
    One of them, Ramon Lobo, was talking about him: His childhood, his job, etc while Chema Caballero talked about the children and about how they helped them, and he has said: “I don’t like to talk about me”.
    Another difference is that Ramon Lobo talked for half an hour about a question, and Chema Caballero answered twenty questions.
    A thing that they have in common is that they both talk about children, and they both have written a book!

    And also that with the help of more people managed to save 7,000 children from Ruf.

    I am very impressed of Chema Caballero’s life.

    He talks about the child soldiers are forced to kill his father, people, to cut arms , legs… and more things.
    The girls are forced to have sexual relations and more things.
    I liked very much the conference.

    I like his talk about the child soldiers, because he helps it and rescue some children of the RUF. He is a missioner of the peace. I didn’t like the history about a child that kill a person and the costumes that he have to do.

    The two talks have in common that he hepls people in poor conditions.

    They do similar tasks, but do different jobs.

    I think that was a very good talk because we learnt a lot about the exportation items in many countries and about soldier children.
    I think the most interesting fact was what they did with the children after they picked them up.

    Well, I think there are very big differences between Ramon Lobo and Chema Caballero.
    Ramon Lobo, was talking about him: His childhood and his job while Chema Caballero talked about the children and about how they helped them, and he has said: “I don’t like to talk about me”.
    Another difference is that Ramon Lobo talked for half an hour about a question, and Chema Caballero answered twenty questions.
    A thing that they have in common is that they both talk about children, and they both have written a book!

    I learnt a lot of things about Chema’s talk like in Ramón’s talk. I learnt that some adults manipulate children for their pleasure and we should not do it. We participated more in Chema’s talk. If Spain and other countries, can not export weapons Spain could be poor.
