FOR ALL THE POTTERHEADS ! Last month I went to see “ How to succeed in business without really trying”, it a musical comedy and Daniel Radcliff is in it! He was soooo good, and despite the fact that he wasn’t a singer he sang really well! If you live in NYC I reaaaaaaally recommend it. Ah to be a potterhead is good but frustrating, every time he sang I wanted to shout EXPELLIARMUS and every time he got in trouble I expected him to whip out his invisibility cloak and be like “ BLOODY HELL, hop off my sh*t man”.
I know usually I don’t talk about serious things but I would like to be serious for the moment. In areas of Southern Africa, mostly in Uganda, there have been many child abductions. Joseph Kony is a dictator who is responsible for all of this. He wants to overthrow the already crumbling Uganda gov’t and believes the easiest and cheapest way to form a big army is to abduct children, drug them and brainwash them to fight for there cause. The rebels go terrorizing villages, destroying communities and ripping families apart… The rebels refer to themselves as the LRA(Lord’s Resistance Army). This problem is major and there are not enough people who know about these events so make sure to spread the word! There is a foundation called “Invisible Children” which 3 young guys started. They went to Uganda with hardly any knowledge on the subject and made an impressive difference. They have set up warning systems, which informs the villagers of when the rebels are attacking. In the last 2 years, around 900,000 children out of the 1.8 million that were abducted have returned to their homes. The good news is that Kony has moved out of Uganda but the bad news is that he is abducting in the Democratic Republic of the Congo now. To help, you can visit the invisible children website and donate money, or buy one of the bracelets handmade by ex-child soldiers (Invisible Children Website). Make sure to spread the word and get involved!
To end on a happy note ma little fruitcakes, hope you guys and gals enjoyed this blog entry and had an AMAZING Easter/Passover.
