Lately on facebook there has been a video popping up. It’s called Kony 2012. I had no idea what this video was about. Not looking at how long the video was I just assumed it was some new movie or something that people were freaking out about, but when one of my friends tweeted about the movement of Kony 2012 and being important I knew it was more than a movie.
Kony 2012 is something you just need to watch. Yes it takes 30 minutes out of your day, but for those 30 minutes you learn about something horrible that is happening in Africa. I’m usually not the type to go advocating things, but for some reason this hit me. I have a niece and nephew who I love, and I cannot imagine the things that are happening to these African children happening to them. I’m not going to describe Kony 2012 on here, because the video is so worth the watch, so please watch the video.
On campus there has been groups started to spread the word. This is another reason why I love the size of our campus, because getting out the word to people is not as difficult as a large campus. Many people on campus are starting to learn about Kony 2012 and spread the news. It’s great to see people come together for this cause, but Kony 2012 is not the only thing wrong in the world and I realize that. So I don’t want to say only focus on this one problem. There are many problems that need attention also! Basically use your voice for anything you strongly believe in.
Here’s the Kony 2012 video:
