Today, I am addressing something a bit heavier than the normal NoH post. And it also is a bit time consuming. BUT, if you can set some time aside today to watch this video- PLEASE DO.
If you are active on Twitter you may have noticed #stopkony trending as part of the Stop Kony 2012 movement
This is in reference to Joseph Kony. Joseph Kony is leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) a militia in Uganda that employees children as soldiers. Kony and his soldiers are associated with murder, kidnapping and rape. I won’t get into the details, but he is a BAD guy.
Filmaker Jason Russell and the folks over at Invisible Children have started a campaign to draw attention to this warlord on an international scale, in hopes to finally bring him to justice. (click on the link to find out how you can get involved)
If you have time check out the video—- it is 30 minutes, but it is an important 30 minutes.
Thank you for allowing this diversion from the typical today. I promise regular scheduled programming will be back tomorrow!
