Footnotes from the British Underground

This blog began as venue for my stories as I traveled in Africa. 18 months later, I return to it as I travel to study as a Marshall Scholar in the United Kingdom. My hope is that this blog can be a conduit for you - my family, friends and secret/strange admirers - to track my movements, see a photo or two and get a glimpse of my days in the UK. Apologies once again to Dostoevsky for the blog's name...

After graduating from Notre Dame, I'm off to England for graduate study. I'll be studying for a M.A. in International Politics and Security Studies. When not studying, I'm continuing to coordinate Uganda-CAN's efforts to end the 20-year war in northern Uganda!

The Story of Four Girls Abducted by LRA

Linked is a great piece of journalism by Melanie Thernstrom about four girls who escaped from the Lord's Resistance Army after being abducted. It is a powerful human story, but horrifying when one multiplies it by the more than 25,000 children ranging from age 7 to 17 that have been abducted over the last decade as part of this war.
