Oh, but hey... it's fun to jump on the band wagon and save the children by sharing a video on Facebook! Hey. I did my part! I helped. Never mind the fact that donations and whatever isn't going to bring any real change to that part of the world but whatever makes people feel better inside, right? That's all this is about, isn't it, feeling good inside?

How about we help out people in our own communities first, where we can actually SEE change and the impacts it can have. It floors me when people get so empowered to help others in third world countries but probably never donated a penny to a local food bank or women's shelter.

I agree, it amazes me how big a deal everyone is making over this when they are on the other side of the world!!

Don't get me wrong, I think this situation is horrible & I have cried watching the campaign video. I am big about human rights (I've won a citizenship award :)) but I think this is crazy! If this man is already dead..I feel really stupid

And here is a good spot to voice that " Not everything you read/see/hear on the Internet is the true"

I think that this is a horrible thing to have happen in today's world. regardless of WHERE it is, it needs to be stopped. Just because some asshat posted a video on youtube that says he's already dead doesn't mean its true. But that's just My opinion!

Didn't we already know about this a few years ago? I seem to recall someone doing the exact same thing, in the exact same area. So why was it not a big deal then?

The point video is to rais awareness they're not expected people to go there and save children they just want people to KNOW about so they can keep troops there can't arrest what doesn't exist and a week Kony didn't exist according to half the world

I'm african and I live in africa, and I think saying that its BS is putting it a bit strong, and making me feel a bit sad.

Parts of africa are really really messed up, and yes, I am sure the people there would just like the world to know about them.
They must feel like the forgotten people of the world, just because they are so poor that no one considers them worth a thought.

By all means, change things in your communities first, before you reach out across the world, but I would hate to think that people would not even want to know about the suffering of others.
People spend millions fighting over oil halfway across the world of each other. I'm sorry. I feel passionate about this. Because I'm african, and the problems on this continent seem insurmountable sometimes.

Ps. If you do come for Kony, please take Robert Mugabe too!
That was a joke. But not really. ;)

it is a sad thing to watch. i think it is true. some people don't some people do. it depends on the person. but the question is. why would someone make a 30 min long video for no reason?

I never said I didn't think Kony is true. In the video itself, the man said Kony had been doing this for 26 years, and he's known about it for about ten years. So why is it now that people are paying attention, and not 26 years ago? That's what I'm questioning about this. People are acting like Kony's actions have just now been brought to light, when it's been known for years what he's been doing.
