“Kony 2012″ Aims To Get Your Attention, And It Works
Crimes against humanity in third world countries are not, unfortunately, anything new. Most of us go through our day without giving it a second thought; worrying only about our own lives and the things that directly impact us. But a 30-minute video called “Kony 2012″ that popped up on Facebook and Twitter this morning is changing our consciousness.
Produced by the charity group “Invisible Children”, the video called “Kony 2012″ illustrates the activities Ugandan guerrilla leader Joseph Kony has committed against children, men and women. It’s aim is to raise awareness about the tyranny in Africa. With over 31-million YouTube views, the video appears to be very effective.
Kony has been indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands, but has managed to evade capture.
