From child soldiers to future leaders. From widowed women to radiant mothers. From orphaned children to loved by a community.
When I speak about “adding to the beauty” in the world, Zulu- Uganda and the Watoto Family comes to mind.
**We need to remember that the fight for true justice continues long after Joseph Kony has been arrested and the LRA stopped. We must continue to walk alongside and support the people of Central Africa as they heal from the trauma and rebuild their lives. A lot of TLC for a long time….I really appreciate what Watoto has been doing to create a family among former child soldiers of the LRA.
Let’s replace an army of terror with an army of love. We cannot abandon them when the “hype” dies down or Kony has been arrested. We must continue to walk with our brothers and our sisters until true freedom, healing, forgiveness and reconciliation is achieved.
