what did geraldine write you? :O you're so lucky!!! i love her too!
She sent me some very kind words of encouragement, and thanked me for writing. You can’t help but love such a down to earth, genuine person like her! She is raw with her emotions, but also has this pristine take on life that is so motivating during those overwhelming times when you want to give up. You should write her, I’m sure she would appreciate it, and even write back!
I am tired of people bashing on this movement, just because it’s gone viral the past week. Yes, there are a lot of other problems in the world going on. The stuff in Syria is very serious, and definitely more extreme. But let’s not compare apples to oranges here.
Kony is one man of many in this world who has caused suffering. Invisible Children is an organization that was created to raise awareness of this issue. I think everyone can agree that he has caused a nightmare in Uganda in the past, and that what he has done deserves punishment.
The video make it clear that Kony has committed massive atrocities over the past 26 years, starting in Uganda and now across adjoining countries. They never once mention that this is still going on in Uganda CURRENTLY.
He is responsible for massive crimes and is wanted by the ICC. The aim of the video is to ensure that his reign of terror is stopped and that he is brought before the International Court to answer for his crimes. I have known about Invisible Children for about four years now. They have been working for the past several years to increase awareness and make a difference. Yes, there will always be bigger problems. Yes, there will always be other criminals. But if people work together, one issue at a time; big changes could be made.
Invisible Children has brought up something they are passionate about, come together for an idea, thought of PRACTICAL ways they could make a change, and applied them! That says a lot more than what most people are doing. If you believe another issue is more important, than maybe this movement will challenge you to start something of your own. Either way, DO SOMETHING.
your 3 dots and negative picture is amazing- how did you do it?
Well, I think you pretty much figured it out, haha. I took a black and white image, inverted the colors, and added the three dots to the center of my face. Nothing special, but a visual phenomena for sure!
