Making Visible The Invisible
If you've seen the video regarding Joseph Kony, then you are familiar with what this petition is in regards to. If not, you can check it out at www.kony2012.com.
The short of it is there has been an individual (man would be to kind of word) by the name of Joseph Kony. He was born in Uganda and is now the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). He is most known for his cruel behavior toward children. His army kidnaps children in the night. The boys are forced to train with his army and perform horrible acts of violence, beginning by killing their parents. The girls are turned into sex slaves.
The United States has sent some military advisers and troops to this area to assist in the capture of this criminal. However, we need to continue to put light on the subject or risk having our government retract support in his capture.
He has been ranked by Forbes magazine in the top 10 most wanted people in the world. And, is currently at the top of the list by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.
By signing this petition, you are asking, pleading with our government to do whatever it takes to either bring this man to justice or to prevent he and his army from harming any other kids. No matter where you live or where you are from a child should not have to worry about the nightmares that this man instills.
Why is this important?
Most of us have seen the video footage regarding the Invisible Children (you can find it at www.kony2012.com). Let's make more than just one attempt to alert our government that we want focus on the #1 criminal in the world (via ICC, International Criminal Court).
