Joseph Kony is one the biggest war criminal of our time. Before we all get up in arms as to the legitimacy of the Invisible Children Organization, let’s take a step back and look at the humanity behind the situation.
The fact is Joseph Kony is a proven war criminal and has abducted, mutilated, raped, and killed more children then I can wrap my mind around. Even typing those words in the same sentence as the word “children” is devastating for me. I think back to my high school history class where I would read about Hitler and think, “who were the people of the world who let him get away with that.” And now I stop and think, it is me.
I am letting Joseph Kony get away with it.
And then I think about the children I hope to have someday and think of the day when they will ask, “mommy why did the world let that man hurt all those kids?” But I am determined to never answer,” because the problem was too big,” or “I was too young,” or “what could I really do.” As a friend of a friend so poignantly has said, “why not me and why not now?” If you can think of an excuse not to do anything you must be working on the formula for total world peace because that may be the only thing more important.
I am not asking you to endorse the Invisible Children Organization, I am asking you to MOVE. There is no proven formula for catching a war criminal and war is never black and white, and but if we do what we’ve always done we’ll get what we’ve always got. So far almost nothing has been done and so he continues his reign of terror. So now you need to MOVE. Decide what to do and then do it. It really is as simple as that.
Kony will continue doing what he’s doing if we let him. That’s right if WE let him. Right now you and me and everyone else who is not MOVING is letting him. So find something and do it, now is the time.(CC)
