“Where you live should not determine if you live.”

Drop all of your present issues now. Stop stressing about your homework, your money, your friend drama, and picture your self living in Uganda as a child. You are kidnapped from your home and forced into an army, sex slavery, or killed. Your childhood is stripped from you, and you will never see your family again. Joseph Kony has been doing this for years and to over 30,000 kids. But why are we just learning about this? The United States will not take action if something is not endangering the economic or safety of our citizens. But does that mean we should ignore something that we know is wrong? These children are invisible and are helpless. Therefore it our job as the youth of our nation to speak for these kids and make a difference.
So, what can you do? For starters, watch this 30 min. video about the campaign and about Kony. I understand its a long movie, but it is definetly worth your time. It does a WAY better job of explaining this issue. Second, spread the word about Kony and what he is doing. If we make him famous (not for good reasons) more people will begin to care. Therefor, leaving the government with no choice but to act. Visit this website, make a donation, sign the pledge, and be thankful for the life you live. Post the video on your Facebook wall, tweet about it, or simply tell someone. Its time to shape history, and make a difference.
