The Bitter Root

20 mins


David Ocitti was among the tens of thousands of children abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda and inducted into their brutal army over the last three decades. He escaped after six months only to be greeted with deep skepticism by his village on the assumption that he was a rapist and killer. In the years since, he has worked to reunite other deeply traumatized escaped abductees with their equally traumatized families. Redemption for those who were forced to commit atrocities does not come easily.
