By Ray Westlake

The hot military, sometimes called Kitcheners military or, disparagingly, Kitcheners Mob, used to be an (initially) all-volunteer military shaped within the uk following the outbreak of hostilities within the First global struggle. It used to be created after the advice from the then Secretary of nation for struggle, Horatio Kitchener. Kitcheners military represented an incredible turning element in British army heritage. For the 1st time, the entire attempt of the state and its humans was once dedicated to an enormous land strength combating opposed to different powers of Europe, with the Royal army taking part in a massive yet secondary role.Армия генерала Китченера была призвана защитить Британию во время первой мировой войны и являлась добровольческим формированием. Ее униформе и организации посвящена эта книга.

Sample text

The stories in this volume invoke the respect and admiration Americans share for people who see and challenge injustice, who refuse to become jaded or accept defeat, who pull themselves up by their bootstraps. By using quintessentially American stories, I expose the fundamental connections between children’s rights and American values. Readers who have walked with children like Sheyann Webb in the civil rights movement or stood beside children like Lionel Tate in a criminal court will better understand the importance to children of equal protection and due process of law.

The Equality Principle The words “All men are created equal” in the Declaration of Independence established an idea that may have been revolutionary in h o w t o t h i n k a b o u t c h i l d r e n ’ s r i g h t s • 39 1776 but has become universally accepted as a bedrock principle of human rights. S. Constitution failed to deliver on this promise of equality—it tolerated slavery and voting rights extended only to white men with property, a small segment of the population. It took the Civil War and passage of the Fourteenth Amendment to make the equality principle explicit in the Constitution.

The experience was a watershed for Tony, but not in the ways one might have feared. Instead of cowing him, it convinced him that he would rather be adopted than remain in foster care, always at the mercy of the arbitrary decisions of the system. But he insisted he would not be adopted by strangers. He made a list of adults he would like to adopt him. One of these adults, a woman I will call Ms. Barnette, had befriended Tony at the church he attended with his foster family. She was active in her community, lived in a tidy two bedroom apartment, had a good job “with benefits,” and her children were all grown.
