US and International Community: Stop Joseph Kony Once and For All

Joseph Kony has been at the top of the International Criminal Court's most wanted list for years now, and he still has not been captured. As each day goes on in which he is still heading the rebel group in Uganda, more children are kidnapped and forced into an army of child soldiers. The girls are turned into sex slaves and the boys to soldiers. These children are forced to kill people in Uganda, even their own families. This injustice needs to end, and the US and everyone internationally needs to get involved in the humanitarian effort to stop Joseph Kony and the rebel army.

This video is what enlightened me and made me realize what atrocities are going on in Uganda and in many other places in Africa including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, and Kenya. Sharing this video also helps spread the word.

      He abducts children, arm them with weapons and force them to exhaust the lives of other innocent human beings, against their will. Furthermore, the little girls who are abducted are made to be sex slaves. How sickening!

      Because anyone who captures children and makes them child soldiers and sex slaves deserves to be captured himself.

      This is very scary and no child deserves to be taken advantage of like this. This needs to be stopped! This man thinks he is doing God's work, well he is very wrong. God does not want anybody's child to be taken away.

      I BELIEVE THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH SIGNATURES ON THIS! Stop at nothing to bring Kony down and create a better home for those Ugandan children living in fear of him... after all, they are our brothers and sisters in this world

      It is unconscionable that the United States and the wider international community have known about the heinous crimes against humanity, in particular crimes against the most innocent and deserving of protection--children, and not taken action. It needs to end.
