Peaceful Civil Disobedience in #Uganda on Dec 15, 2014

December 15, 2014 seems to be the day when #Ugandans will demand change.  Those who follow Social Media have heard this date announced daily. Our country has faced much blood shed and we will not and must not shed anymore blood.  We do not hate our government, we hate the corruption.  The world will be watching.  Burn nothing, loot nothing, hurt no one AND in the eyes of the world, we will be vindicated.  So get ready to be silent and present to demand for justice for our country and our people.  When we get to the point of selling Lake Victoria, we have to demand for change.  Those who forget history are bound to repeat its mistakes.  We will not repeat those mistakes and we must not.  Ghandi used Peaceful Disobedience.  Mandela said "remember only what serves you for the future and forget what would ruin you if you remembered only the horrors".  Many Ugandans have lost family and friends and yes, we had massacres but now we must demand for peace and seek reconciliation because our kids and grand kids deserve better.  No Blood letting.  We are much too brilliant to do the things for which the world will judge us as violent delinquents.  Be Smart. Be Alert. Be Awake and do not blink. For God and My Country.
