Ugandan families remember lost children

Counselling group holds memorial to bring closure to families whose children were abducted years ago by the LRA.

    More than 20,000 Ugandan children were abducted by the rebel Lord's Resistance Army, and forced into becoming fighters or sex slaves.

    Today, years after the LRA was chased out of Uganda, many families are trying to come to terms with the fact that their loved ones may never return.
