On 9th August 2014, unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking social unrest that continues to this day. Here is a petition to prevent police misconduct.
The traditional justice system of the Acholi people, known as Mato Oput, is a system that encourages forgiveness and reconciliation. In this system, imprisonment and capital punishment were unknown because of the value placed on human life. The Acholis preferred to rehabilitate the offender, rather than isolate or execute him or her. Certain crimes Mato Oput cannot be applied to, such as cannibalism, gang rape, and incest. The reason for this is that these crimes were mostly unknown in traditional Acholi society. They usually appeared in folklore and were attributed to the Ogre because such crimes went beyond human understanding. Much like the situation in Rwanda (mentioned previously), Ugandans realized that the Western justice was inadequate for healing their nation following the terrible war crimes committed by the Lord’s Resistance Army.

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
God bless this woman she deserves eveything
