review To Stop a Warlord

Children forcing them to become child soldiers After meeting with survivors and community leaders aid workers and lawmakers it was clear that the current international systems were failing to protect the most vulnerable Guided by the strength of her beliefs and convictions Sedgwick Davis knew she had to help other parents to have the same right she had to go to sleep each night knowing that their children were safe But Sedgwick Davis had no roadmap for how to stop a violent armed group She would soon step far outside the bounds of traditional philanthropy and activism and partner her human rights organization the Bridgeway Foundation with a South African private military contractor and a specialized unit within the Ugandan army The journey would bring her to uestion everything she had previously believed about her. In a word inspiring Shannon Sedgwick Davis is a beautiful and honest storyteller and this is a story that needs to be told I was vaguely aware of the conflicts in Uganda and the Invisible Children organization before reading but it was nothing compared to the actual violence and horrendous genocide committed by the LRA and Joseph Kony I found myself reflecting on my ignorance and a deep gratitude for the things I often take for granted like personal safety shelterfood and people who love me I highly recommend this book and felt a nudge to be a little brave in the service of helping others
