Uganda Ceremony

I saluted the people for their dedication to excellence and for their ability to survive the many atrocities inflicted on them by the Lord's Resistance Army. I spoke of the three hundred year period of institutional slavery in the united States. I framed it in the context of suffering and overcoming and linked the suffering of the African American to the suffering of the Acholi people of Northern Uganda. Here we made a profound link. I find this link every where I travel together with the common link of music to aid in binding us together
