Imagine a young boy. Every night, he doesn't sleep in his own bed. Instead, he walks miles to sleep on the muddy floors beneath a local hospital. Because if he doesn't, the local militia might abduct him and force him into their army. This is Uganda. These children are called "night commuters."
We talk to a Ugandan boy who has spent most of his young life hiding from the militia. He's sharing his story with Las Vegas students, thanks to a nonprofit group and high school teachers. Rebroadcast.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
