‘Stop Kony’ Shines Spotlight on Warload

The video was uploaded March 5th. When I viewed it for the first time on the 6th, it had 1.5 million hits. Now, at the same time today, it has received nearly 27 million! It begins with a quote,

“Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come.”

What looked like a political campaign (something I didn’t care about rushing to see a video of) became a touching, and motivating film centered around a great atrocity.  Celebrities, politicians… and more importantly, the masses of people around the world are viewing, being moved, and recognizing that something has to be done.

I urge you to watch the video and, if moved to, share this with your friends and loved ones.  If you wish, you can help the project by donating and/or getting your very own Action Kit.  The efforts worldwide are to culminate on April 20th, 2012 in an event called, ‘Cover The Night.’  Supporters will meet at sundown and “blanket the streets” putting up posters and stickers.  For more information, please visit the organization’s website at http://invisiblechildren.com.

One of the aim’s of this project is to make the man Joseph Kony (pictured above – left), the leader of the LRA so famous, that something is done about it.  With the spotlight on Kony such that is growing brighter by the hour, we have every belief that he will be apprehended.  To all our readers, thank you for your part in this – if only for the read.

At the least, now you know!

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”

*At the Combative Corner, we respect your opinion & thoughts on this matter & although we do not (normally) take such a vocal stance on a subject like this (outside of the M.A.), the message is an important one that should be expressed.  We learn & grow in order to create balance, to create peace.  In some instances, to end violence.  This is surely a message that we all can get behind.
