Joseph Kony

Invisible Children has released another video that calls for action against Joseph Kony and his LRA. Each video I have seen from them is incredibly emotional and pushes me to do something. Joseph Kony must be stopped, but don't let Invisible Children be your only source of information. Do some of your own research. For starters, read this post by Rylie over at Compelled and then read this article. But don't stop there. Being an active citizen is important, but I feel that being a well informed active citizen is much more important. Do your research and collect some facts. With that information, decide how you personally feel about the issue and then act accordingly. Don't let someone tell you what to think or how to feel. You have the freedom to read what I have written here and forget about it or decide that I am crazy and that's totally fine because you are an individual with your own thoughts and convictions, and that is a beautiful thing. With the technology we have today, we have the world at our fingertips. Don't waste that privilege.
