"Most Shocking Second a Day Video" 
A young girl's life gets turned upside-down in this tragic second a day video. Could this ever happen in the UK? This is what war does to children.  
 
This video shows what it might be like for a child during war. It both starts and ends on a little girl's birthday, but by the end, she has lost all of her innocence. Slowly escalating violence, bomb scares, running out of water and medicine, explosions, moving from your home, being constantly on the move, not being able to stay clean, gunfire, teargas, being separated from your parents - they all take their toll.

Happy birthday to you. 
Make a wish. 
Granny! 
Have you done your homework? 
Adam! 
Ready or not, here it comes. 
Violent clashes with British... 
Wee! 
Bye, mum. 
 
Live amunition... 
Deserve to get shot... 
Strikes on rebel positions... 
We are going to stay. 
What's happening? 
Where are we? 
Daddy! 
Happy birthday to you. Make a wish, darling.
