I don’t usually post this sort of thing, but I haven’t been so moved, as I was by this video, in quite a long time. I am excited about a new kind of activism that seems to be happening in the world. People are waking up and making big changes together – changes that matter and truly do make this world a better, more peaceful place. The world state of affairs can seem so thick and hard and deeply messed up that to say “make this world a better place” almost sounded cheesy. Wrong! We need to say farewell to apathy!
KONY2012 is a campaign by Invisible Children. Joseph Kony is one of the world’s most brutal criminals, and has been at large for over 20 years (I had never even heard of him until last night!). Through this campaign, many thousands of people are contributing to the efforts to end Kony’s crimes against children – policy makers, including well knowns like Obama, Clinton, Bush; some of the most popular celebrities; and thousands of people like you and me. The video is worth seeing. Even if you do not plan to do anything at all, it is inspiring and to the point and will shed light on a very real situation in the world, which needs to end.
