The film below, titled Kony 2012 has gone viral receiving over 74 million views as of today. Jason Russell directed and narrated this powerful video whose purpose is to call the world’s attention to Ugandan criminal, Joseph Kony. Kony is a powerful warlord who has been accused of abducting thousands of children in Uganda over the past twenty and turning them into soldiers and sex slaves.
This video is also an excellent example of the power of social media.
The fabulous success of this video has also called attention to its veracity and the movement that produced the video, “Invisible Children”, but, even if half of what is shown is true, the world needs to intervene on behalf of these children.
