The moral question is if all other attempts have been tried and failed, why doesn't the world listen to voices of people who say we are ready to forgive? We do not need cosmetic justice but need real peace that is long lasting, not grave yard peace where after every one is dead there is peace.

Northern Uganda on the Oprah ShowNorthern Uganda on the Oprah Show

Ever since Oprah heard about the genocide happening in Sudan and Uganda's young nightwalkers, she says she's had trouble sleeping at night.

"There is a holocaust going on right now in Africa," Oprah says. "Everybody who hears it today, can no longer say, 'I didn't know that was going on.' Maybe you feel like you have no real power to change anything, but the truth is, you are the only hope that all of these people have."

Oprah hopes that viewers will "rise up against the madness" and help stop the atrocities happening in Africa. "If we don't listen and do something now, we're all going to have blood on our hands... If this was happening to your child, wouldn't you want the world to help?" she asks.

To lend a helping hand support, Oprah urges you to support organizations working in Africa.

Meet Adrian Bradbury of Gulu WalkMeet Adrian Bradbury of Gulu Walk
"The original Gulu Walk, which lasted for 31 days, saw Adrian Bradbury and Kieran Hayward conduct their own night commute in Toronto, Canada. Every night in July they walked 12.5 km into downtown Toronto to sleep in front of city hall. After about four hours of sleep they made the trek home at sunrise, all while continuing to work full-time and attempting to maintain their usual daily routine."

"My interests in art dwell around what is around me. Nature, as well as day to day activities of the common man are my major sources of inspiration. I delight in simplicity, and as a result a lot of my work has been linked to naïveté. I however make no apologies for being true to myself."
