So just yesterday I heard about this new campaign called Kony 2012. Apparently it is a campaign to make Joseph Kony, one of the world's worst war criminals, famous so that he can be arrested and the children that he has kidnapped can be returned to their homes. He is the leader of the LRA that started in Africa and he has been running the rebel group for over 20 years. Now I know this is a little bit out of the ordinary for this blog but I am kind of curious to know what everyone's thoughts are about it.
As for me I think it is a great campaign but then again I am an aspiring philanthropist who wants to change the world one lease document at a time (hopefully that will change soon), so I might be semi-biased. But the idea that just regular everyday people from all over the world are getting together to try and stop this man from destroying children's lives and from killing many people sparks something in me. So watch this video and tell me what your thoughts are on this campaign. I am just curious to see if it will be effective and actually make a change.
