Blessed to be a witness

The Omaha Film Festival will be screening our Uganda documentary, “Mato Oput” tonight (March 8) as part of a block of Nebraska documentaries. I am thrilled and proud and excited to see our film in what should be a packed theater.

The screening comes at an interesting time as the nonprofit Invisible Children begins an international campaign to stop Joseph Kony, the warlord who was behind the civil war that caused so much pain and destruction in northern Uganda.

Having seen that destruction and the strength of the people to build their lives again makes me feel even more blessed to have had the opportunity to go to Uganda and hear the stories and meet the people I will never forget.
