On November 17, 2012, a group of thirty Briarcliff students (including me), led by the Coalition for Human Dignity and Ms. Cotnoir and Ms. Guida, descended on Washington D.C. We were there to make our voices heard and join thousands of others calling for the arrest of Joseph Kony, the worst living war criminal. Kony has abducted thousands of children to force them to fight in his army and has pillaged, mutilated and killed thousands in central Africa.
Our purpose in marching was to stop this reign of terror from continuing. As we marched on the White House and Washington Monument, twelve thousand young adults joined together as brothers and sisters to demand an end to crimes halfway around the world. Why? Because our liberty is bound together, and freedom and love for our fellow humans knows no borders or distance.
