I saw the website say that as at 2009 there are over 1 billion people in the world hungry, and thought to myself, we really are in a world where ignorance overrules right. The World Food Program have issued this News Release.

This year, mainly due to the shocks of the economic crisis combined with often high national food prices, the number of hungry people is expected to grow overall by about 11 percent, FAO projects, drawing on analysis by the US Department of Agriculture.

Almost all of the world’s undernourished live in developing countries. In Asia and the Pacific, an estimated 642 million people are suffering from chronic hunger; in Sub-Saharan Africa 265 million; in Latin America and the Caribbean 53 million; in the Near East and North Africa 42 million; and in the developed countries 15 million in total. Why is the media not reporting on this? How in 2009 can our world be in a worse position than the 1980’s? With the advancement in technology you would tend to think that life would change for at least the better. Well assuming gets us no-where.  I find it so hard to comprehend the amount of violence and poverty gripping our earth at this point its to me beyond comprehension.  Slavery in the world is bigger now than ever before, a 32 billion dollar industry going on right under most of our noses! Asia Pacific, USA, Canada, India, Middle East and even my own home of Australia have been caught up in the slavery trade.

For years i had no idea that these things were going on in the world, i was a materialistic person that cared for myself and family and local community but never really paid attention to what was going on in the world. At that point Invisible Children and a tumor came into my life and changed me ever so much. I watched, i learned and i listened, and when i did all that i thought to myself, the age old question. Well what can i do about it, im just one person, im not rich, i cant just fly off to africa or asia and do something about it, but i just cant sit here knowing what i know and NOT do anything about it. So i started ringing people i knew and talking to them, showing friends and family the invisible children dvd’s and started on a mission that has bought me joy, sadness, love, appreciation, new friends, wonderful memories, tears and so much more than i just cannot put into words. On my journey through raising awareness for invisible children and the children of uganda, its made my interests in the world flourish, i never ever thought i would be an activisit, but i am one and PROUD to be. I know what i want to see change in this world and im on a mission to help be that change.

I cannot stress enough how important it is we all help, as a global society these days thanks mainly to the internet, we have an obligation to be the voice of those who are not heard. So many people in this world are suffering right now and they need our help. Im on a general award wage have 3 kids to support, rent, bills and all that, yet i still manage to sponsor 2 children thats an extra $100 a month expense and donate at least $40 per month to different organisations. I make sacrifices in order to do these things and even thou i physically get nothing out of it, spiritually, mentally and emotionally i get more back than you could imagine.

I currently have a petition started going to President Obama, US State Senates and Congress, AU Prime Minister Rudd and Minister Smith (AU Foreign Affairs Minister) asking them to support the “LRA Disarment and Northern Uganda Recovery Act 2009”  If passed through US Sentate this would be a historical win for the people of Northern Uganda who have been displaced for over a decade now in IDP camps.  2009 saw the start of the IDP’s returning home due to the LRA moving out of Northern Uganda and into DR Congo. The congolese civilians are now facing what the Northern Ugandans have faced for the last 2 decades.  It is time we say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and end the violence and bring Joseph Kony to justice. Please sign our petition, be the voice of the invisible children and show you care.  top left hand side “TAKE ACTION” button. Click to sign our petition.

Thanks for reading todays rant! im not quite finished so will update again shortly.

    There are very many problems in the world. One person deals with hunger others with criminals.
    My phone is illegally wiretapped and my microphone activated as a listening device by an online Thug “Shay Riley aka Halima Andersen of the “Black Female Interracial Marriage” blog.
    This has gone on for nine years yet this Predator who is most likely a pedophile who molests her children still scurries around online.

    That is what the world is. Bad, really bad and awful.

    Hunger is bad. Crime is totally awful. People like Shay Riley should be thrown into jail.
