Invisible Children.

(written last night before bed)

As I am typing this, my babies are warm and cozy in their beds. When I wake up tomorrow, we will go through our morning routine...get dressed, breakfast, brush teeth etc, and I will take Noah to school. He will play and learn and grow while he's there. Hayden and I will have some time together playing and eating and snuggling. Just a happy usual kind of day. Sounds simple enough, right?

I had 27 minutes to spare tonight so I watched this video.

Our regular old day seems not so simple anymore.

If you have 27 minutes to spare now and haven't seen it yet, please watch it. If you don't have the time now, come back later and watch it. Share it. Sign the petition here. Donate a few bucks if you can. If not, spread the word. That's worth much much more.

Thanks for your time in reading this. I know I don't usually get "heavy" on the ol' blog, but I thought this was important to share.

Happy weekend to you.


  1. i finally watched it yesterday, too, after lunch as emmy played in the playroom... and i cried the entire time, just thinking of how it would be to live in constant fear of them being taken each night. and if they were, the life they would be taken into.... it's heart wrenching.

  2. Watched it today. Hard to watch but the message of hope out shined the violence.

  3. I'm proud of you, Ali, for showing us this tragedy. We should all watch it, remember it, stay updated on this inexcusable situation, sign the petition and send a few dollars. Genocide, kidnapping and sex slavery must be stopped.


I think I'm a comment-a-holic :)
