(Photograph) - A 17-year-old boy is reunited with his mother in Harbel after seven years of fighting in the Liberian civil war. The conflict cost 150, 000 lives and forced more than half the country's 2.5 million inhabitants from their homes. It also leaves a legacy of tens of thousands of young fighters scarred by the horrors of war. This teenager was planning to ask his mother to send him to school
