Abduct yourself

I had to post again, after I got a voice mail from Invisible Children.

For those who don’t know:

Invisible Children started over six years ago, when three regular guys decided to go to Africa for the hell of it. They found their way to Uganda, and in it, the most overlooked human rights atrocity of our time.

There is a war going on between the Ugandan government and a radical faction called the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). It is not, however, a war between men. 90% of the LRA is made of abducted children. These kids are stolen from their familes. Made to kill each other. Brainwashed. Told that their gun is their mother and their father. The ones who escape walk for miles, sleep in bus stations and hospitals. And this is not ten or twenty kids sharing a room. Picture a hospital wing, with the floor so crowded with sleeping children that you can’t see space between them. Thousands.

I can’t begin to explain the horrors these children face. Very soon, I’ll host a viewing party for the Invisible Children documentary.

There is a rally on April 25. It is called THE RESCUE, and it’s intention is to call attention to all the children who have been kidnapped by Joseph Kony, the first individual to be tried by the International Criminal Court for Crimes Against Humanity. For those not working faire that day, I strongly urge you to try and attend…abduct yourself, as it were.

I can’t be at the rally, sadly. On that day, however, I will be selling braided bracelets to faire workers, and all of the money will go directly to Invisible Children. I know that money is tight for everyone right now, but anything anyone can give will be greatly appreciated.

Please go to their site and watch the Rescue film. It is not easy. You will probably cry. But I believe that the world needs to know about these children. I’ve never believed anything so hard in my my life.

Go here.

Scroll to the bottom, and click on the right-hand icon for The Rescue House Party Event. That will take you to the thirty-minute film.

It’s a common cliche…the children are our future. Please, help give these children a future without violence and fear.
