There has been a civil war going on in Northern Uganda for the past 20 years. The children of Uganda live in fear of being killed, kidnapped, forced into warfare, and physically and sexually abused by the Lord's Resistance Army. This army is an opposition army against the government, though there is nothing wrong with it. Watch the video for a little more in depth on this. As I said, the children are abducted and brainwashed to kill, and only to kill, other people. If they resist the process, they are killed also.
Has anyone else heard of this? Well, the reason I bring it up now, is because my highschool has been extremely active in this cause. And just this saturday, we will be doing a used book sale and free showing of the movie, which I all highly encourage you to buy.
If you don't feel like buying the DVD or video, you can watch it here for free. Note: If you are under 10, please refrain from watching this. There are some graphic scenes, and the way things are described could be bone-chilling.
I highly encourage every micechatter to help with this cause. It is very severe, and people are dying because others aren't taking action. Please help these Invisible Children.
