He Wasn’t Afraid to Be Different
Daniel was a young man when enemy soldiers invaded his land. The war didn’t take long because the Babylonian army was much stronger. They conquered the land and put it under their control. As soldiers were passing through, they took all the rich, intelligent and handsome people as prisoners with them. Entire crowds of people were carried away to Babylon (its modern name is Iraq).
Daniel also was taken prisoner. They took him into a strange land and he couldn’t even understand their language. He was a prisoner of an army and did not know what would happen to him.

This story is true like all the other stories in the Bible. The Bible is actually God’s message for us. And so we can learn something from Daniel.
