Get Displaced


See the red X’s up above?  That’s where the displacement camps will be on Saturday.  I’m talking about an event called Displace Me and it’s happening this weekend.  It’s organized to raise awareness about the longest standing war in Africa, in Uganda, where children and adult civilians are living in fear everyday.  Last year, a similar event, the Global Night Commute, was held and 80,000 people across the nation traveled to cities and slept on the streets.  That’s when I became aware of the movement cause our friends Bet and Erik participated in Long Beach.

I wish I could be there, but I just heard about it and my Sunday morning responsibilities kinda prevent me from being there.  But there’s still time for you to sign up.  If you haven’t heard of it before, go check out the website for Invisible Children and learn the story.  I am still wanting to see the full movie.  It’s a cause you may here about here some more, so go see more of what it’s about.
