Alright, so I'm guessing most of you do not know who Joseph Kony is.
That's ok, I didn't either, until I saw this video.
http://vimeo.com/invisible/kony2012
This man, is, there is not proper word for the kind of monster he is. He abducts children from their homes and forces the boys to become soldiers and kill their parents. The girls, he turns into sex slaves.
This man is the number 1 war criminal in the world, and nobody knows his name.
This is a project, for 2012, to help stop this man, if we can even call him that. The video is long, but trust me, it is worth it.
It's all about raising your voice and making him known. It's to make sure everyone knows his name, that he's famous and his crimes no longer go unnoticed. As mentioned in the video, if this happened in the USA, it would be on every headline. But not in Africa.
This video will show you the story of a boy, Jacob, who was running for his life.
So I ask you, watch this video, and see what you can do to help. It can be as simple as writing a letter to a congressman, making a video, or just spreading the word in your hometown, and even just your school.
As I'm sharing it with you guys now.
Share this on facebook, tumblr, blogspot, twitter, any social networking site you are a part on. The more people that know about him, the better.

EVERY PERSON COUNTS.
