For those who haven't heard, there is this huge push on the internet to bring Joseph Kony, an Ugandan guerrilla group leader crimes against humanity to the public.
A charity called "The Invisable Child" produced this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4Mnpz…
Now there's been alot of backlash to the video too, claiming the charity is making money from the tragedy, fears that America can't start another war and a number of other issues questioning the nature of this movement.
But the whole thing reminds me of a 7th Heaven episode I saw about the cruelty of the Taliban towards woman. The weird thing about that was that was it aired about two years before 9/11. Now for two years, no one said a word about how bad things were over there... until it became a national tragedy.
I imagine it was the same for Hitler at one point. America didn't want in part in the war but you know after Pearl Harbor, there had to been people saying "What are we doing in Germany? Wasn't the Japs that bombed us?"
I'm not saying believe everything you hear, but raising awareness about this situation can't hurt. That's my stance on it as of right now.
