Gulu Walk Day - October 22, 2005
Around the world, we're rising to our feet,so Ugandan children can put down their arms.Every night, as many as 40,000 children in northern Uganda "commute" for several miles, to the nearest town, in search of safety. To stay home means risking abduction and life as a child soldier, sex slave or even death.
For 19 years, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has been fighting to overthrow the government of Uganda. LRA rebels based in southern Sudan capture and use children as frontline soldiers. More than 20,000 children have been kidnapped — and the conflict continues
On October 22, in 32 cities around the world, men, women, teens, and families will walk in a show of solidarity with these 'night commuters', the true victims of this all but forgotten 19-year civil war. What started out as an attempt by two young men to better understand the ordeal of these courageous children has grown into an urgent, impassioned worldwide movement for peace.Participating cities include:

USA: Austin, TX
Boston, MA
Chapel Hill, NC
Chicago, IL
Denver, CO
Lawrence, KS
Los Angeles, CA
New York, NY
Pittsburgh, PA
Rochester, NY
Seattle, WA
South Bend, IN
Syracuse, NY
San Diego, CA
Washington, DC

Wi-Fi at Hyatt!
Hey yall. It's October, THE BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR! (as we found so many to agree) Cool noodles. H2O is set to start October 11, 2005 -oka: next Tuesday- I'm pretty excited and a but nervous but it will all work out I'm sure. The main purpose of this update was to get my first October post, but I guess I can talk a little more about what's going on: Every week I am going to rent a few "classic" monster flicks and watch them. This week I rented "Bram Stokers Dracula," "The Bride of Dracula," "I was a Teenage Warewolf," and "Wolfman." Also recently I have been practicing my REM sleeping (Rapid Eye Movement) I drove on the expressway for the first time this weekend. I met my friend's new boyfriend whom is now known as my brother. And uhm, yeah, that's about it.
