Kony 2012

I just watched this video. I don't know who has heard about Kony 2012 but I have been hearing a lot about it. I didn't know what it was and I finally got annoyed about not knowing. So I gave in. I watched this movie. It is quite lengthy but it is worth it.

Please watch it and see what you can do, even if it is something as small and trivial like sharing it on Facebook, or posting it on a blog like I have, you are still helping others get informed on a very important subject. I have a feeling this is going to be something that the elections are going to talk heavily on.

Kony 2012. He needs to be stopped. PLEASE watch it and pass it on or pass the message along that there is more to life than our own lives here in our precious USA. We are so lucky to have been sent to the United States, so lucky. As a citizen and a voter, I will be watching what the candidates have to say about this. This will be a deciding factor for me that is for sure.

Wow, this is so sad. I hope he can be stopped. All those innocent children shouldn't ever go through this.

I agree. This is very sad and I hope he can be stopped. From what I understand, he is mostly on the run now. I do think though, that it would be surprising if any of the candidates discuss this during the voting.

I also feel bad there are people in the world suffering at the hands of terrible people like that. No one deserves that treatment.
I also know there has been a lot of criticism of this video. The main character has been out of Uganda for years now, and as a result of this film, the people of Uganda are fearful there will be a backlash on them. There are many places in the world dealing with evil men in power, not just Uganda. This video pulls at your heart strings. However, I think if there were someone making a video like this of the people in Homms, Syria we'd be rallying around them too. The whole world seems to be in upheaval. It's all really sad. :[
