It’s like Mother Nature screaming
“YOU’RE A WOMAN? OK HERE BE A WOMAN!!”
I’ve seen this video going around and I just wanted to a) Share it and b) Make a comment about it (because I’m Diana and you know how I roll)
The Invisible Children organization has done an amazing job over the years they’ve been active. About two years ago they did a massive campaign all over the country, getting people to stay overnight in public parks in order to call the attention of celebrities and government officials. And they did. Later they were able to get a bill in Congress and the fact that their work has gone so far is remarkable. Moreover, it’s amazing to see this video going around Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and any other website you might have seen your friends share it.
I was involved with a branch of Invisible Children in my university, and it saddens me to say I lost track of their progress and their fight. I think it’s because we feel that we are not enough to stop something so big. We feel inadequate and powerless and insignificant, but it’s even the little things— such as appreciating the efforts made, being aware of world issues, and spreading that awareness— that we become a part of the solution, that we gather the power to play a significant part in the process.
With this said, I too, wanted to share this video.
Joseph Kony is an African leader who abducts children and forces them to kill there parents. Males go in to a “army” Kony has created, and girls are turned in to sex slaves. 99% of people on the earth don’t know about it, and that’s why it’s still going on. How would you feel if you were taken from your parents and forced to kill them, or because a sex slave. You wouldn’t. There is a group called “The Invisible People.” A couple of years ago the leaders went to congress and asked them if they could stop it, they refused and claimed it as impossible for America to send troops into Africa and capture Kony.
2011, the impossible was done. Obama sent troops to help capture Kony. But Kony got word, and was able to leave before they were able to capture them. In order for troops to find Kony, they need technology, people and support. Congress stated that if the people dont care, then why would they do it.
It is our job, as people, who have a voice, to tell people about what Kony is doing and make them aware. Tell them about “Kony 2012.” In order for people to care, they must know. April 20th, 2012, that night, it is our job, to put everywhere “Kony 2012” untill sunrise the next morning.
Please reblog to spread the word, one person at a time.
