Since September 2008, the Lord’s Resistance Army has had a renewed will to spread terror by murdering over 600 and abducting more than 160 children to fight amongst its ranks. More than 104,000 Congolese have been displaced since Christmas, in attempts to escape the LRA forces.
Invisible Children, along with other organizations, believe an international effort to apprehend the LRA leader, Joseph Kony, and rescue his child soldiers is the most viable way to end the most neglected humanitarian emergency in the world today.
This Saturday, Whitney and I will “abduct” ourselves, along with thousands of youth and young adults around the world, to bring awareness to this situation. If you would like to join us or learn more about the event taking place in Nashville, visit www.invisiblechildren.com.
Of course we will also be taking photographs for Invisible Children and we will be sure to share those with you after the event.
