If anybody`s intrigued by this, I highly recommend the documentary Invisible Children. It`s about child soldiers in Acholiland (Uganda). This was the organization that received the proceeds from the benefit battle of the bands I co-hosted this year. It`s a really sad documentary, and it will really open your eyes.
public service announcement
we should send all those troubled teens to the camps. Then we wouldn`t have all these gangs.
NO NO NO D:Lol, well, as long as it was male only :P
I understand that it could be effective for the `ASBO` teens, but installing a national service for EVERY teenager is not necessary.The ASBO teens only make up a small percentage of the teenagers, it`s just blown out of proportion by the media.
Am I supposed to be concerned right about now?
Funny thing is, I know that it is a fake camp to protest against kids in war-torn countries, but I have to admit, I enjoyed doing my national service, and got a lot out of it. In fact, I honestly believe that if the UK had a compulsory national service, that it would solve a lot of problems with bored kids hanging out at malls, or earning ASBOs.
With that in mind, I`ve got to say that the warchild campaign doesn`t see the full picture, or appreciate that other cultures might see things in a different way. If you can instill an element of respect, discipline, responsibility, authority, pride and common sense into a child without robbing them of their childhood, and still letting them have fun as well as blow things up, then let them.
I want to see more Camp Otukka, and wouldn`t have a problem sending my kids there!
Wow, you`re a genius. Oh wait, this video is a FAKE camp to raise awareness on the REAL camps in places like the Middle East and Africa. You have to love the stupid people that make posts.

I wana go there lol
Would be really fun but still a little bit dangerous if you ask me.
And yes, I know it`s a fake thing used to raise awareness...
It all about awareness
Now that I know that it`s actually to protest child soldiers, it`s actually rather cute, you know. The image of that girl with a gun was rather startling.
My child wouldn`t be getting within 10 miles of that..
That`d be a cool camp though.
