My Proudest Moment....

And it had nothing to do with weight loss.

Being interviewed by our local news channel - I'll add video if they add it online!
Today at my school, Champlain College, more than 150 people gathered to watch a documentary about the atrocities being committed in Eastern Africa by Joseph Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army (L.R.A.)  This film, Tony by the group Invisible Children is at once incredible sad and incredibly inspirational.
Myself and my fellow organizers, the team from Invisible Children (including Robert from Uganda) and the team from my school's Center for Civic Engagement

Along with my closest school-friend Sadie, brought this event to my campus. Because we care, not for credit, recognition or due to a requirement. We did it because once you learn about Child Soliders - children taken from their homes between the ages of 5 and 12 - old enough to carry a gun but not old enough to ask questions, you cannot forget.  I've included some photos from our event today.
Our amazing turn-out

In 33 days, our next event will take place. People world-wide will be taking a 25 Hour Vow of Silence to raise awareness about this war that has been going on for 25 years. I have set a fundraising goal of 500 dollars - please help me reach this goal and continue to act as a leader on my campus when it comes to helping and supporting those who cannot support themselves.


Me, Bailey (from Arkansas on tour with  IC), Sadie, Robert (from IC, from Northern Uganda), Justin (from Amarillo, Texas on tour with  IC) and Katrina (from NH, on tour with  IC)
