A former child soldier shared his experiences of the Liberian civil war during a panel discussion on child soldiers Wednesday in the Walsh Building.

Eric Gibson made the decision to leave home when he was 16 years old. "The rebels had 80 percent of the country and the resources," he said. "I said to my mom, 'I have to leave, I have to go behind rebel lines.' What I didn't know was that you go behind rebel lines, it's like you're going into hell and you can't go back to heaven."
