Before my father died, he told me singing was a great talent.  When I sing, I think of him.”  Rose, age 13

Five months is a long way off but we have found a few ways to get connected with this country, Uganda.  I hope to be better informed by the time we fly away.  As the rain came down outside and we sat on a comfortable couch, sipping tea, the children of Patonga, a refugee village in northern Uganda, bravely pursued their dream of competing in the National Music Competition in Kampala.  I believe this trip will change my head and my heart.
