Editor's Note: This op-ed was written by Kathryn Bigelow, the Academy Award-winning director/producer ("Hurt Locker," "Zero Dark Thirty") and Enough Project's Policy Analyst Holly Dranginis and originally appeared in The Daily Beast as "Keep Fighting Joseph Kony’s LRA" on June 22, 2015.

They attacked the boat and took the girl and her father, marking two of the roughly 240 abductions carried out this year by suspected Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) fighters.
