I usualy keep such things away from my LJ. I try to avoid drama, and keep any political disputes away from here. However, I belive myself to be a person who can not ignore injustice and suffering, if there is anything, however small, that I can do. I do not live in the US. But I have friends there. And if any of you have not seen this before, be it on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter or anywhere else...
I ask, that you do now. Take a moment. Instead of watching a stupid movie just for the sake of it, or some game, or the other, give those minutes to this film. I think it is a worthy cause.
I have not seen it here on LJ yet.I think it's time we brought it here. The below is taken from a post on tumblr.Who is Joseph Kony?

the deadline to stop Kony ends Dec. 31st 2012
If you don’t feel like watching the video, here’s a little summary:
Joseph Kony lives in Central Africa. What Joseph does is, he abducts African kids. He takes them and he keeps them. He makes the boys killers, usually they have to kill their families. When girls are abducted they are turned into sex slaves and are raped. There is no way out of his group: Lord’s Resistance Army, AKA the LRA. He has adbucted over 30,000 children and had made them child soldiers. he won’t stop what he is doing until he is caught, he found out that the US is now on a making to look for him making him harder to find. Right now, Kony is invisible because no one knows about him.. no one. Tell as many people about Kony as you can and make him visible and know. Donate money if you can. Make him visible. we need change, and we need difference. we need Kony to be famous so we can stop the harm of innocent children.
I do not seek a discussion of weather this will help or not. A discussion on what is right or wrong. I do not seek drama, and so please, keep such things away from this post. There are forums and places for such things, and this is NOT one of them.
You may re-post this. You may not. I will not judje anyone on behalf of this, and I ask, that you do the same.
