KONY 2012

WE’VE SEEN THESE KIDS

WE’VE HEARD THEIR CRIES

THIS WAR MUST END

WE WILL NOT STOP

WE WILL NOT FEAR

WE WILL FIGHT WAR

Who are you to stop a war? Who are NOT to?!

It is important to consider this multi-dimensional problem from varying angles. Whilst social media has done what it does best and has spread the word like nothing else could over the past 24 hours, let us not get caught up in the sensationalistic discourse that has been born out of this. “Let’s keep it about Joseph Kony, not KONY 2012.” Let us not either get caught up in debate and cynicism for the sake of cynicism. There is work to be done, and what has been done so far is good.  May we consider valid points with due attention (IC has responded with grace and attention to the critics), learn what we need to, better ourselves, but not take our eyes off the goals…which are to 1. Stop Kony and his reign of terror; 2. Rescue and restore his victims – both of which will be helped by this campaign.
