South Sudanese NBA star and peace activist Luol Deng speaks from the heart in this moving message to the youth of South Sudan on forgiveness, strength, and courage in the face of the current conflict. The message from Luol is interspersed with powerful images from his work in South Sudan using basketball to build bridges between youth from different tribal and ethnic backgrounds. He calls on South Sudanese youth to take a stand against the ethnic polarization of the conflict and to advocate for peace in their own communities.
