Uganda: The Challenge of Forgiveness

The famous Kony 2012 Youtube video brought wide attention to Joseph Kony and the abuses perpetrated by his Lord's Resistance Army in central Africa. Here is another video about conflict in the region, this one showing how religious leaders and laypeople in Uganda have sought to build peace through forgiveness and reconciliation. Thanks to Dan Philpott at the University of Notre Dame for forwarding us this video.
