I just wanted to share this bit of insight from a girl I know who is over in Uganda with the Peace Corps. She posted this on her Facebook last week, shortly after the video hit:
I'm posting this snippet from her for the sole reason that I believe the more informed you are, the better armed you are to help.
Choose your own path - while I, for my own reasons, have chosen not to support the Kony2012 viral campaign, I give kudos to those of you who have taken such a stance.
It's awesome seeing so many people so passionate about something and work towards its fruition, and kudos to the Invisible Children organization for tackling a whole new means of not-for-profit marketing, and making it spread like wildfire.
Just remember that it's cool that we all support different things. That doesn't mean someone is RIGHT or WRONG. Quit hating on each other. I might wanna save baby pandas instead of children, you might want to save reese's cups. Don't make me bust out the Kumbaya speech again.
