While I was away on my travels, the Netherlands Embassy erected a statue in the main intersection of Gulu. The monument is entitled “The Pillar of Peace” and depicts two children reading a book with dismantled guns lying at their feet.
The statue emphasizes the value of education over violence and the two children are meant to be returned child soldiers. Click here for local media coverage of the unveiling and commentary from both Ugandan and Dutch representatives.
