Invisible Children & KONY 2012

Source
I'm not sure how many of you have seen the KONY 2012 campaign on Facebook or Twitter or just online in general, but it's something I support wholeheartedly...and it's not a political something I'm posting about to get a discussion or argument going.

I want to spread the word about it because I believe in it. I believe that Joseph Kony is a terrible, horrible, despicable human being. I believe that no child, anywhere in the world, should have to suffer the way the African children Kony has abducted have.

I believe that the man above needs to be arrested. That the 30,000+ children he has taken deserve to have some justice. That all these years cannot pass with no action.

Invisible Children began nearly ten years ago when three college kids went to Africa and discovered a story that few people had heard about...and they made people care. Nearly ten years later, we're at a point where it needs to come to an end. Where Kony needs to be arrested - before the political support dwindles and they're back to square one.

If you're still with me now, then thank you. If you skipped all that and came straight to this point, that's okay too. If you have the time, I'm asking you to watch the short film below. It will take about 30 minutes out of your day, but it just may be life-changing for you. When I saw the original Invisible Children film years ago, it changed my life, so please, give this a chance, and if it's something you can believe in, do everything you can to help. Thank you!

I've been seeing this everywhere and I'm glad everyone is working hard to stop him. He really is a monster and I'm glad people are paying attention.

Everyone has been talking about this recently, and I agree that we need to do something about him. How can anyone just stand by and let these things happen? It's just wrong.

Thank you for posting this. I'd missed the hole Kony thing *somehow* and wasn't sure what was going on. This guy needs to be in jail for the rest of eternity.

Thank you for posting on something that's a huge, but completely ignored, problem in our world -- child soldiers. The LRA and other groups manage to get away with these atrocities because no one makes our leaders stand up and say "enough already, it doesn't matter that this is in Africa and not here they're children and deserve to be protected."
