KONY 2012

This subject has been circulating and spread on the internet for two weeks now and I would like to present my thoughts about it. KONY 2012 is a movement by Invisible Children Organization. Below is the video about what they are trying to do. As for me I'm trying to spread the word too because after watching the video I felt bad about myself for not knowing what's going on in other places of the world. This video certainly touched my heart and it inspired me to work harder to achieve my goals. 
From what I see in the video the founder of Invisible Children is doing something noble, something that will make a change in the world. I feel that people like him deserve praise and a pat on the back telling him "Job well done". This world we need more people like him, people who are willing to go the extra mile in doing good for the world, not for himself. There are many negative things out there about Invisible Children and some even say that it's a con job. After reading an article in the link below, I too thought they were in it for something else and I was happy to find out it's not which leads to the second link. The second link is where Invisible Children released an article replying to the accusations that were presently by people who think that there are a scam. I like how this organization works with transparency on their financial status and how they are spending the donations.

My thoughts on this movement is it's a job well done and I hope that people will support what they do. I know you might think when this is over what will they do, I'm sure they will lend a hand and help other parts of the world with the same vision in their hearts and mind. Even though I may not be able to donate but I will continue to spread the word about them and all the good things they have done. They have come a long way and it's the final stage where Kony needs to be stopped in making him famous. As people who have access to the internet we can continue to spread the word and create awareness. If you have the money to donate, you should donate and help out because these are children who are suffering and with your donation they have a better chance to survive in this world. What I learned from all this is that I'm just a tiny person in this world and I'm lucky enough to have electric, to have a computer, to have knowledge and to be able to live a simple life. There are many out there who are suffering and we who have a better chance in life should not complain too much about when you have the capability to do something about it.
