KONY 2012 Campaign Spreading like Wildfire

5 years ago

Today, I watched a video that I will never forget. Something that resonated so deeply within me, that shook me to the core of my being. As I watched and learned of the horrors being committed against children, I looked at my own son. What if he lived in Uganda? What if he had been snatched ruthlessly from me and made into a child soldier? A soldier that would be forced to come back and kill me. To be forced to mutilate other people's faces, to rape girls, to live in fear of being killed himself one day. 

I can't even fathom, standing here in the safety of my home, far away from the tragedies taking place on the other side of the world. But now I know and now I have a responsibility to take action. To share with you, to spread the word. I've seen that change is possible if enough people want it badly enough. We've all seen it. The end of separatism between blacks and whites, the movement towards equality for all people regardless of age, sexual orientation, race, etc. Together, we can stop this evil man. Together, we can fight. And when we're done with him, we can tackle the next one on the list. And not stop until everyone is safe.
