Thank you to those who continue to support both us, and Invisible Children. Theorganizationis an extension of our family, and we hope that Jasons vision and work toward peace in the region remains the focus, and comes as soon as possible, as they continue to work in his absence.
We would, again, like to make it clear that Jasons incident was in no way the result ofdrugs or alcohol. The preliminary diagnosis he received iscalled brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by the extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration.Though new to us, the doctors say this is a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks.Even for us, its hard to understand the sudden transition from relative anonymity to worldwide attention -both ravesand ridicules, in a matter of days.
Jason will get better. He has a long way to go, but we are confident that he will make a full recovery. He is, and will remain, under hospital care for a number of weeks; and after that,the recoveryprocess could take monthsbefore he is fully able to step back into his role with Invisible Children. During that time, we will focus not on a speedy recovery, but a thorough one.
On Jasons behalf,keep your attention turned to the end of Africaslongest running conflict, and setting a precedent for all future injustice.
With love and overflow of gratitude for your prayers, we thank you.
Jasons wife,Danica Russell, on behalf of the entire family.
