Love The Life That You Live

Some of my greatest passions are traveling and connecting with people. Stories about life should be cherished, shared, and learned from. Wanderlust designates a strong desire for or impulse to wander... in modern usage, to travel and to explore the world.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Such Good News after recently returning from UGANDA! On Monday, President Obama signed the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act into law, and released a personal statement recognizing the "hundreds of thousands of Americans who have mobilized in response to this unique crisis of conscience." In doing so he became the first U.S. President to publicly pledge that ending LRA violence and recovery for affected families across central Africa would be lasting priorities.

President Obama held a rare signing ceremony, with an unusually long speech praising the work of NGO's and activists... many of them students and inspirations to all of us.

By committing to helping the four African countries affected by the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army), we are officially pursuing justice for thousands of people and children who have been killed, raped, and kidnapped into the armies. The reality of child soldiers is something that should shock and touch anyone with a heart for others. The LRA has been terrorizing for over 23 year's. The leader Joseph Kony has been indicted for war crimes by an international court. I'm proud of the US for taking this step.
