‘KONY 2012′ Video Grips the Web, Exposes Joseph Kony’s Crimes Against Children

YouTube

I first heard the name Joseph Kony about five years ago. It’s a name that’s stuck with me ever since. And his name is the subject of a video that will change your life.

The day I heard Joseph Kony’s name was the day I also was introduced to Invisible Children, an organization that first documented the abduction and enlistment of children into the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda and other parts of Africa.

What first was supposed to be a film-making trip turned into a life-changing event for the originators of Invisible Children — their first documentary, “Invisible Children: Rough Cut” was released in 2005 and has been seen by millions in hopes of drawing attention to Kony’s destruction in Uganda.

After years of working in the midst of a decades-long war to try and save children and bring justice to Joseph Kony, Invisible Children released a video this week that is taking the Internet by storm, as millions have already shared ‘Kony 2012′ to carry on the effort created by Invisible Children. The organization released a statement with the video:

KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.

Over the past five years, I’ve made friends with people who have worked/continue to work with Invisible Children, and their passion to help these children is unmatched. One member of Invisible Children was killed in 2010 while being caught in the middle of warfare.

Take a look at this video, share it and be a part of the change in Africa, to be an activist for the arrest of Joseph Kony.
