A Dad Took His Sons to Israel and Syria to Show Them the Difference Between War and Video Games

After his sons requested to play the video game “Call of Duty,” a Swedish journalist and professor took his two sons to Israel (before the conflict with Hamas began) and Syria to show them the difference between war and video games. The boys, 11 and 10, traveled with both their parents and were surprised to learn that people without guns such as children also get hurt. Upon their return home to Sweden they no longer showed interest in playing “Call of Duty” but did ask for updates on the war. This is an extreme example, but luckily they are all safe (!), and these boys lives now are changed forever. They may even grow up to be journalists just like their dad.
