Do you believe that a women from a small town outside of Washington DC can help stop a violent war in Africa?
I do. And I will…. by making others AWARE.
In the spring of 2003, three young filmmakers traveled to Africa in search of a story. What started out as a filmmaking adventure became much more when they stumbled upon Africa’s longest-running war–a conflict where children were both the weapons and the victims. A conflict that starts and ends with a man named JOSEPH KONY.
I’m here to help stop that war.
If you’ve not heard the story of Joseph Kony and the invisible children, I implore you to watch this:
This film and accompanying campaign by the Invisible Children organization aims to make Joseph Kony famous in an effort not to celebrate him, but to raise awareness and support for his arrest as well as set a strong precedent for international justice.
I was moved to tears throughout most of the film. I pictured my own sons in the place of the boy soldiers.
It must stop.
Please help to spread this message as far and as wide as possible.
Help expose people to Kony’s reprehensible acts and support his arrest and the dissolving of the LRA.
NO MORE INVISIBLE CHILDREN.
Note: Due to the explosion of recent interest in Invisible Children, much has been discussed and concerns have been raised over the campaign. If you would like to read more up on it, I encourage you to do so.
