Fluco Beat

Egg baskets full of good things were given to sick children.Every child remembers waking up on Easter morning and running to the living room to see what the animated Easter Bunny had left them the previous night. The joy children get as they rip open their baskets and throw that iridescent “grass” all over the floor looking for candy and toys is one they will never forget.

You walk into school feeling stuffed from the donut and coffee you had that morning. Little do you realize, two out of every ten students in front of you may have had nothing to eat, and there’s no guarantee they’ll be able to eat tonight either.

In America people even die because of lack of food. Combine the number of people suffering from malaria, AIDS, and tuberculosis, and they still don’t top the number of Americans suffering from hunger.

They were a group of kids trying to make a difference. In the process, they reached out to thousands of people about an unknown war and created the Invisible Children organization.
In 2003, three young men traveled to Northern Uganda and discovered something more tragic than ever imaginable. Twenty years prior to their visit, a civil war broke out in Northern Uganda; to this day, it is still being fought. Every day, children there are abducted or killed by the “rebels,” a group that kills because what they call the “Holy Spirit” told them to. At a young age, the children are brainwashed and taught to kill. Very few make the attempt to escape, and those that try know they are risking their lives. Shockingly, most people are unaware that the war is even going on, let alone killing innocent civilians.
