A Song Dedicated To The Invisible Children

Broken for Invisible Children1

Invisible Children generally means abuse of children and in this contact specifically abductions, and in Africa forcing them to serve as soldiers.

Invisible Children, Inc. is an organization founded in 2004 to bring awareness to the activities of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Central Africa, and its leader, Joseph Kony. Specifically, the group seeks to put an end to the practices of the LRA which include abductions and abuse of children, and forcing them to serve as soldiers.

Invisible Children also operates as a charitable organization, soliciting donations and selling merchandise to raise money for their cause. The organization promotes its cause by dispensing films on the internet and presenting in high schools and colleges around the United States.

To support this cause what you can do is make a DONATION.

David Archuleta has been a true support for Invisible Children for many years now.  A song named “Broken” inspired by this invisible children was written by David Archuleta and his friend Jon Hunt.  David explains the back story on the original song he wrote with Jon Hunt, Broken from the album, BEGIN. in this video.

“Broken”

I know you don’t wanna say goodbye yet,
But she can’t survive here with just a petal
You still have one wish but it’d be useless,
More than roses have died in this desert.Child, it seems that younger and younger,
They start to wipe your minds clean.
But how, I wonder, just barely under,
Do your eyes continue sparkling?And I-I never want to open up your eyes, everything’s broken.
And I-I never want to open up your heart, everything’s broken.I don’t understand why they are gone,
Or what reason there is to be strong.
I still try to love but I’m in a place where
Doing what’s right is so wrong.But if you see me ignore the gun,
We are still fighting for life.
Here’s our wish just to exist
In more than our eyes.And I-I never want to open up your eyes, everything’s broken.
And I-I never want to open up your heart, everything’s broken.Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel?
It doesn’t matter until we see broken lives heal
Do you see what I see? Do you feel what I feel?
It doesn’t matter until we see broken lives healOh oh oh oh oh…And I-I found it hard to open up my mouth, will they hear what’s spoken?
But I-I saw when I opened up my eyes, invisible children.Broke, but not broken.
Broke, but not broken.
