The gym at Marina High School was filled with about half of the school's students early Friday. But it was dead silent and full of tension. All eyes were directed at a projector screen that showed the story of a young boy from Uganda named Tony Bazilo. Tony grew up surrounded by war, poverty, tragedies and loss. He lost many loved ones, including his mother, and had no one to pull him through until he met young men and women from the Invisible Children. The Invisible Children are the child soldiers who are abducted from their homes by a guerrilla group called the Lord's Resistance Army and forced to fight.
