KONY 2012


KONY 2012 from INVISIBLE CHILDREN on Vimeo.

I remember learning about this when my son was just a baby.   I remember thinking that if I had been born in Uganda, this could have happened to my son.  This video is almost a half hour long, but I promise it is worth every second.

Grab some tissue first.

Uh yeah, after watching the Kony video I've come to the conclusion that yes, it's most definitely sad that children in Africa are being kidnapped, raped, tortured and trained as killers to murder others etc, etc but our country is not financially fit or stable enough to be trying to intervene into their affairs. We have our own issues that we need to be addressing here first. I guess their goal is to try and deploy our troops overseas to Africa to fight this war on Kony and have this person captured because of what he is doing to the people (sound familiar?) but we're already exhausted most of our resources from the 2 wars we been through in the past decade alone. I'm not supporting this at all..war propane at it's finest! Take off your blinders America!

Thanks for posting this, I know it probably reached a ton of people! I just feel like how can we just do nothing. It's like that story about the man throwing the starfish on the beach back into the sea and someone tells him that what he is doing is pointless because there are too many to throw back and he will never make a difference, and the man just replies that "It made a difference to that one".
