‘Tony’ tells story of Invisible Children
Monday, October 31, 2011
A few youths may be seen Tuesday wearing black T-shirts and tape across their mouths.
They’re joining with others concerned about the devastation left by the 25-year war in Central Africa waged by the Lord’s Resistance Army against innocent villages.
The 25 Hours of Silence reflects the thousands of voiceless children abducted from their homes and forced to be child-soldiers or sex slaves, said Melissa Hatfield, First Baptist Church associate pastor.
Invisible Children, a media-based non-profit organization, will screen its latest documentary, “Tony” at 7 p.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church.
The First Baptist youth group has been interested in promoting awareness of about these atrocities since watching an Invisible Children video about six years ago.
“It was definitely an eye-opening experience,” said youth Hope Watson.
