this is a little homework I had in english a couple of weeks back and I’d like to share it with you guys because I have already talked about this topic on my blog. So here it goes…
I wanted to tell you about a campaign I’ve decided to support. You know me always getting involved in social cases and this time it isn’t different. Have you already heard about Joseph Kony and the children he has captured in the past 26 years?
Maybe you’ve probably already heard about the video produced by Jason Russell, the video has already gone viral on the internet and the campaign is receiving support from famous people and politicians. Joseph Kony is an evil man that for the past 26 years has stolen children from their homes at night, and forced them to murder their own families. The boys are turned into child soldiers and the girls are forced to become sex slaves. The people in Uganda are afraid to sleep at night, fearing for their lives.
In the video we meet Jacob, a young Ugandan boy Jason Russell met on his first trip to Uganda. Jacob tells us he doesn’t want to live anymore because he’s afraid for his life and he prefers to die than to live on this earth. One of the biggest changeless the cause is facing is all the criticism, people that don’t know what it is or just feels like ruining a great thing.
On April 20th we are going to hit the streets to make KONY famous, not in a good way but famous enough that when someone asks you if you know who Joseph Kony is, you can tell them you know what a horrible man he is. We want to capture him so that he can pay for all the crimes he’s committed for the past two decades.
I hope you decide to join the cause and we can stop Kony together.
