Starting tonight and ending tomorrow, thousands across the world will be participating in 25 hours of silence to end the war on child soldiers in Central Africa (manily Congo, Sudan, and Uganda). For the last 25 years, rebel leader Joseph Kony and the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) have been abducting children from the homes and turning them into child soldiers. Thousands of children have been abducted and that number will continue to rise unless this war is brought to an end. Therefore, inorder to both raise awareness and attempt to put an end to this war, over 25,000 will be silent for 25 hours - to speak out without speaking for these kids who do not have a voice in our society.
By posting this, I want to do my part to raise awareness to those in the mgoblog community. This is a great organization fighting for a great cause. Check out the video below to learn more about the organization and event.
