Unfortunately TygerStryke is right to an extent, some of the kids don't really understand what they are doing or that they are going to die. Its known that the parents celebrate their child's martyrdom and the community moves on. I guess if someone where raised in an environment where you were told everyday that your solo purpose is to follow the rulings of your Father in every way then why would you think other wise.
Then again this is just my Thoughts.
Condolences to Tyger's mate as you never really can look at a child again as just a child after the event.
