Standing Tall

Dear President Museveni:

I was most happy to read in the BBC that you are "wary" of the anti-gay bill and that "...the MP who proposed the bill, who is member of the ruling party, did so as an individual and was not following government policy."

I understand the great pressure that you must have felt. The question is: What now? Under "foreign policy" do you and your cabinet take the "HIGH ROAD" of Articles 1, 5, 7, 9,12,16 & 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and accept and support ALL people? Or do you and your cabinet take the fear-mongering low road of discrmination and violence that may well lead to a call of "crimes against humanity" and take you before the International Criminal Court? What do you want? What are you willing to do to be a true hero adored by ALL your people?

I, as a citizen of the United States of America, I support this country in supporting you to have the courage and fortitude to lead your great country in taking the "HIGH ROAD" of tolerance and compassion.

With deepest respect,

Thanks so much for this professional measure taken to sound the trumpet. There is an adage that says, you can only direct your child through the natural means communication, whosoever speaks through the anus has only fart thereby polluting the air.
May God grant our learders listening ear and obedience to sound advise.

I am very well and I hope you are the same. I am guessing that since the workbook hasn't been delivered to you that it got waylayed somewhere. Darn. I feel sorry about this.

taking the high road

Hi K-lee,

Thank you for participating in the Action Blogging Campaign and for leading us in voicing our concerns to Ugandan Parliament. Your words are firm, passionate, yet completely respectful, which is so important when addressing a dignitary and broaching such a heavy subject cross-culturally.

I will include your words to the President and other members of Ugandan Parliament.

Love,
Jade
