It’s now been five years since I got off the boat. We don’t have much for resources all we had was a river, sand, grass, and long grass. When I got to the land I was thinking there is no way we can live on this land with very little resources. We survived five years and we should be able to last another five. If we can stay on this land for ten years then we get to keep it and do whatever we want to the land. New has a skill of weaving which we used her skill for making nets to catch fish and gold. I am living on the land with three other people constructing the land the way we want and also to the Queens expectations, if we do not please her then I would be coming home with nothing. As the years went on we struck gold that was in the river and we also found fish. On the land there are two bison that we tamed and using for food and clothing. Unfortunately we are starting to lack on resources, I have been looking for work with other peasants that are on different pieces of land. I have been having no luck on getting a job. Unfortunately I fell in the river and died by setting up the net for fishing, but a nearby peasant fished me out and revived me. I am now living with the peasants that fished me out of the river. For them I am hunting and doing construction on the land. When the ten years are up and we can keep the land hopefully you guys could come and live on the new land. By then I hope we can have the resources we need to live a full life on that land. Where our location is we don’t have much protection against predators but hopefully we can build a wall for protection. The house is complete and able to sustain life. We are starting to trade things for valuable resources. Recently we got an apple so that we can have fresh fruit, but we would have to wait a while because it still has to grow.
We are now in the year of 1509 and the queen came for her announcement regarding the need of soldiers. We gave the queen wheat and soldiers. Four of my brothers came on a ship but it sunk. Now I have to go as a soldier to make the queen happy so we can remain on the land. The queen is returning in six months to say if war is declared with TChikchikua and the First Nations. We might be getting more soldiers to fight the war but now it’s uncertain about the war and the need of more soldiers. Our land is constructed to the best of our ability but we don’t have any protection against predators. We might not need the protection because of our location but it depends where the enemy is coming from. I am thinking having the protection of the land would be better than none. Having a wall could give us time to get away from war or other disturbance. Hopefully war is not declared for all the other lots because that could give more troubles; the soldiers could stop the war at its earliest so it wouldn’t affect everyone else. Everything on the land is going great we are not experiencing any shortage of supplies which is good. Life is good on the land and I hope it stays that way starting with the war; I don’t want to go to war with the other tribes who are coming to attack. I don’t know what is causing them to come and fight. It could be for land or power at this point I am not sure for what. Everyone doesn’t know anything until the next visit from the queen. All we have to do wait and hear what is going to happen in the coming years. Everyone could be successful or not it all depends what we are going to have to face.

Last week we watched a video about Kony and him taking kids from their homes. Kony would make them kill their parents and other people he had in mind. He has gotten away with this for 26 years. In that time period nothing has been done and now they are now deciding to raise awareness of this problem happening in Uganda. People all over the world are now doing something about this problem by putting up posters, websites, and facebook pages all so people can respond to the issue. If this event was happening in Canada it would not be occurring as long as what Joseph Kony is. They are saying 2012 is the year they are going to capture Joseph. If they want 2012 to be the year then they better act faster because there are only seven months to do so. If the U.S military teach the Uganda military how to capture him then Kony would be caught faster than if they wait. With all the support to get Kony there would be a better chance that he won’t be affecting any more people. From the video I learned that it is not only affecting Uganda it is affecting the whole world. If things go as planned by the end of 2012 Kony won’t be affecting any more people.
