The other side of the story. Watch. Keep an open mind.
My opinion: I think everyone do have a point. Uganda’s journalists, and the organization as well.
I might not know the whole story but I can say rumors is actually a friend of those who hunger for power. Kony 2012 doesn’t affect my country, neither does it affect anyone’s country but Africa, but if everyone of us will act selfishly, nothing will change. The easiest way for us to help is educate and spread awareness, why not do it? It’s just a simple click.
Awareness on cancer, HIV, other diseases, bullying, war, it’s not yet dead, it’s still out there, the thing is every thing goes through a trend, but, doesn’t it have one cause? to help people know that life is important and to unite people to survive this cruel world?
I want peace, that we all know is impossible to attain, but if we cut the roots of war - the warlords, it might be. This is why I support Kony 2012, not because the founder’s kid is cute, or I was just taken away by my emotions, but seeing people worldwide unite (youth specially), isn’t that great? FINALLY THE VOICES OF THE PEOPLE WILL BE HEARD AGAIN, NOT JUST THE FAMOUS AND POWERFUL PEOPLE.
My country goes through the same, journalists here sacrificing their lives to get the story out there, this is why I know that it will not be our country’s concern, we have so much to fix here, but I know that by helping spread awareness, countries that has the ability to help might be able to send help because of their people’s voices.
They say Kony might get scared and abduct kids again to protect himself because of the invisible children’s video, sure, it isn’t the smartest move but isn’t it also to help people in Africa be aware that this man might still be alive and their lives might be still in danger? What if Kony is not yet dead, but waiting for the right time to struck again?
“Temporary peace” is not enough, if the roots are not cut there will never be the possibility for peace.
He’s only one man, and still thousands of others, but one by one capture them, less problem.
Then the greedy politicians are the only people we need to chase (they breed fast, so I don’t know about that).
And about the money the organization is getting, why criticize it? they say that they help build school, and spread awareness, and it’s for office and travelling expenses. You all need to understand that they have their personal expenses as well, they work full time for this organization, how will the organization function if the employees don’t get an income? they have families too.
Do we always need to hear and see a lot of proofs before we believe in something? what? Do we need to see another mass murder before we act? Another traumatized victims?
Go on, act like the minister of magic and the magical people when they didn’t believe that Voldemort is still alive and they need to see him first and lives should be spared before they believe.
Kidding aside, The Invisible Children Organization is doing something, isn’t it better to spread awareness than do nothing at all after you hear these things?
THE THING IS, THE WORLD FUCKING SUCKS, THE ONLY THING WE HAVE IS OUR VOICES AND THE FUCKING INTERNET - THE ONLY WEAPON WE HAVE, WHY NOT USE IT?
