Get To Know KONY and Get With the Program!

For so many days now, I couldn't quite figure out what to write about.  I kept looking for topics in my head, in my daily life, but at the same time wanted something that would stay true to my voice, my self, while remaining substantial, meaningful and worthwhile.  

This morning, I have found it.  And I am sharing this with you with such great hopes that you would do your part as well.  It does not matter how, where or how much but please do something.  This is about the KONY 2012 campaign. Kony is not a US Presidential candidate.  He is a war criminal who abducts and terrorizes children to make them part of his army and do his dirty work of killing civilians.  No, he is not in the U.S. and if you are reading this blog right now, most likely, he is not in your country either.  But that should NOT make a difference.  You are part of humanity....the same humanity Joseph Kony is hurting.  You are already involved and to think otherwise, to think this does not affect you, is complete ignorance.  

I promise you that watching this featured video below will be one the most worthwhile 30 minutes of your life.  It is impossible not to be moved emotionally, mentally, spiritually.  All the information you need will be in this video and suggestions for action are clearly outlined as well.  (On the website, I thought it was quite cool that I was able to Tweet celebrities!)  Please do not fast forward or skip any part of it as each second is significant.  And remember...YOU are significant.  YOU are in a sphere where you have power to change things, wherever you are, whatever it is you do.  I am active in social media and I am a blogger.  This is my medium.  If I found a way to get involved, so can YOU.
