A Grand Village Welcoming
We had arranged to visit a resettled village outside of Gulu, Uganda. The people of this village had been resettled after nearly 20 years in a refugee camp where they were placed for protection from Joseph Kony. About two miles outside of the village, their welcome parade met our vehicles, singing and dancing in a ritual greeting. We felt humbled by their grace and the way they offered virtual strangers the best they had.
