The Invisible Children Movement

Kony2012

Imagine a world that's actually united, somewhat like what the true definition of what the United States of America stands for. True freedoms, equality, and justice for all inhabitants, and for all of humanity.

This is something far from coming into existence in this day and time, but any slightest initiative towards any hope in such a reality coming true, gives a ray of hope to us all, who desire peace, and whom deserve it most.

Now what is there to do in this vast huge place we call Earth, to bring such a reality to life.

Well today many of us have learned of one man’s dream, to use humanitarian efforts to raise awareness globally, and to bring an end to a single tyranny that exists in the world, from a very bad individual who deserved action taken upon him. "Mr. Joseph Kony is that tyrant to be taken down by force, and by any means necessary."

The Film - Kony 2012

Jason Russell - Film Director & Founder of Invisible Children

Jason Russell attended the USC Production Film School, where he graduated from, and got his awesome creative talent for film making, to get its jump start into some intense action.

Back in the year 2003, Russel was determined to make a difference in his life, and the life of others he didn't know at the time, and so he ventured out on a mission to Africa, to find a great story to tell. Little did he know, he would find something truly quite sad there, and low and behold he found his inspiration that he had needed, to eventually create this huge humanitarian movement of epic proportions displayed in this film, and in countless others throughout the years.

He really had no clue as to how huge it all would become, or what he was going to do to change, or help the situation in Uganda he had discovered about some young children being abducted by rebel forces there, lead by a man named Joseph Kony, who is now considered to be a super criminal, an outlaw, infamous killer, rapist, and someone who has committed countless acts of child exploitation and abduction.

Starting out though he had no idea if it was even going to become possible, or how far this feeling he had in his heart, didn't know if he was actually going to make any kind of effective change he had sought out to do. Well judging by the response he's received by the world community, his selfless efforts has caused such a huge difference in the lives of those he had met close to 10 years ago.

These acts of kindness he's made is showing us all, that change is truly possible, but it takes time, and some pretty monumental efforts to catch wind & most of all it takes unity.

We can make all the difference

The World's Response

The funny thing is, I just recently had written a hub about the butterfly effect titled, "Is it Coincidence, God or some Philosophy that utters things into existence", and how just one small slightest change can have, that can utterly create a sort of kaleidoscopic effect, and eventual domino of events, that would have the potential to change the entire global view on things as a whole, and in life itself.

Well this day has come with us all being so socially connected on the web, and the world is quickly responding to things of this magnitude, the first response to such an epic movement as the Kony2012 documentary film has suggested to the world is, 100,000,000+ views have actually occurred on the Youtube channel, of the founders of for Invincible Children, and in a momentous, record breaking time of 6 days.

This monumental cause here, and movement that's dawning upon us, this is real life change taking place (History is being made in 2012 and by ordinary people who've shown that they truly care in strength of numbers of support), Us as a single united body, like a huge organism that acts immediately, as a unified team when a virus has entered its blood stream and when its at its optimal health levels and communicative collective consciousness.

      I have watched Invisible Children. Though not in great magnitude, during the decade old conflict in my country, children were to forced to work as a child soldier.

      Thanks for doing this wonderful hub.

      Yes indeed, I can't agree more, currently I'm trying to figure out ways to help more people get to learn of hupages, and to share with many more folks, so I know that for sure.

      Its tough to try and help everyone along the way, but I truly believe its worth every effort you can give it. See ya soon in another one of your awesome hubs @ Femmeflashpoint.

      CE,

      I'd be honored! Thank you for thinking for me!

      I do try hard to be a good person, and I sometimes fail miserably at that. However, each day gives me a whole new opportunity to do things right the next time, and I endeavor to do just that.

      I appreciate your sentiments. Even one person can make a difference. :)

      I'm going to add your hub to my collection of resources here @Femmeflashpoint. I know we think alike somehow, not sure how but maybe its because we're good people, and have good intentions to help others.

      Talk to ya soon & thanks for such an awesome comment response, your story itself can be a hub of its own, awesome stuff.

      CE,

      Great minds thinking alike? LOL!!

      I've had the nic for over 10 years, and I'm so used to be called femme as I am my given name, that either one works.

      While living in England, a friend who I met through a long-time online friend (it was his dad), asked me one day, "What IS your real name and which do you prefer to be called?"

      I told him my given name is Angelia, but I'll answer to either one without problem.

      The only nickname I've ever been dubbed with, and is still used by a few members of my family is "Angie". I really hate it, and to my ears, it has the same effect as someone dragging their nails down a chalkboard. It sets my teeth on edge, and lots of the time I refuse to acknowledge that I've been addressed. Mean of me, I know. Thankfully, it's only few of them, from my generation that are in habit of using it, but I keep hoping they'll QUIT it, lol!

      The rest of them, I can live with and don't mind at all.

      :)

      Thanks @Femmeflashpoint, I can always remember your screen name, because the Flashpoint part, is actually a part of my business name, and that's quite the coincidence. My business name is actually 'Flash Point Computing Virtual'. Isn't that something, we're truly in a small world, that's one thing for sure @Femmeflashpoint.

      Thanks for dropping by, and for commenting, I truly appreciate the return gesture, and fully accept your critique in every way, your to kind.

      CE,

      You did great with this, including the sensitivity issue. Very good job on "shouting it out!"

      Yes this is a very touchy issue, I had first made a video hub, but the video was of poor quality, then I decided not to air it, and came up with this hub instead. I just hope all of the worlds people get to rethink things a bit about how they handle conflicts, everyone wants to establish their differing agenda's, non of us know all the true details, but the true light unfolds and shines eventually.

      I also hope its not to late for all those who are in harms way, and are suffering a fate of abusiveness due to another persons greed or lust for power and control.

      Thanks for the comment @Flashmakeit, and I'm following the events on this story thus far, if you want to see what happened to the boy Jacob, simply watch the documentary, he's now a man and a advocate against such crimes on humanity, I believe living in the United States today.

      Very sensitive subject because that is a very primitive part of the world. The video reminds of the movie blood diamonds which gave me nightmares for a week. Can you tell me what happen to the young boy name Jacob? They need to get a plane with cameras that can zoom in on the jungle and find the killer. Just a thought.
