Not really. It became a humongous thing in my high school senior year because this one kid got really into and spread all around. Made groups and everything for it on facebook, constantly was posting statuses about it and such. Now you go on his facebook and there is no mention of it anywhere or anything. No one from my high school does anything for it. Its sad how much of a fad it was.
Well looks like the "fad" paid off. Who cares if its a trend, at least its a trend that brings awareness of the horrors of child solidiers.
