STOP KONY – 2012

7 Mar

I’m taking some time to sit down and write this blog about a cause that is very dear to my heart. I have long been aware of the horrible poverty and living conditions of many people living in Africa. But, what many people are unaware of is the fact that SO many young and innocent children are abducted from their homes and forced to become child soldiers, and this is all under the reign of a man named Joseph Kony. The young girls are brutally raped and used as sex slaves and the young boys are forced to go on killing sprees, often times having to kill their very own parents. It’s frightening to think that we live in a world where such atrocities can occur, and even worse that they occur everyday and still so many of us are completely unaware. How many of you have sons and daughters of your own, or hope to someday start a family? How many of you could fathom being forced to kill your own parents? How would you feel if you were abducted as a little kid and forced to become a child soldier or a sex slave? Don’t turn a blind eye to whats going on around you. This is our world, and everything we do or do not do, matters. Every voice, every person who speaks up and spreads awareness matter and it does make a difference. So please, I beg of you, watch the video I have posted below, and watch it in it’s entirety. Think of all the hardship these Ugandan people have to endure and then ask yourself – How can I help stop this? How can I make a difference? How can I inspire change in the minds of others? Don’t sit there feeling powerless. Raise your voice, open your eyes and hearts and DO SOMETHING. It could be as simple as spreading this message on any and all social media sites or donating money, anything at all, but do SOMETHING. Tell your friends and family and encourage them to spread this video and this message so that everybody can be aware of who Joseph Kony is and why we need to come together and stop him, once and for all.

If after watching this video, you want to donate click on this link and make a pledge to raise your voice and stop Kony. Make A Pledge to Stop Kony Everything helps. Sometimes the smallest acts of kindness make the biggest difference.

Please take what I have said to heart. And ask yourself if you really want to live in a world where a man, like Joseph Kony, can get away with such atrocious acts and not be brought to justice.
