More powerful than words, video, and even laughter is the human spirit. When people come together, there is nothing we cannot do.
Today while trying to find the next thing to make you laugh, I found something to move your heart, and to spring your body into action.
This little video was put all over Tumblr, and maybe even some of your Facebook profiles this afternoon. It’s 27 minutes that I beg you to watch, focused without Instagraming, Scrambling, Facebooking, and Tweeting. There’s Kanye and NIN songs in it, George Clooney is in it, and it looks a lot like Never Say Never. It’s a pleasure to watch. You will get goosebumps, and feel moved. Honestly, I haven’t felt this good and empowered in a long time. I can’t go in to too much detail because I want you to feel the sense of discovery for yourself.
Although we live in sunny LA, and have the world at our fingertips, thousands and millions of children are not so lucky. Not everyone gets to grow up in a nice home, have a loving family and siblings, attend private schools, colleges, Coachellas, own Macbooks, Priuses, and go on family vacations. We’re the luckiest kids on the planet. We have a voice. For the past 20 years, children in Uganda have been kidnapped, mutilated and forced to kill their own parents by a man named Joseph Kony. He literally steals them in the middle of the night, forces them to kill their parents and join his army. Why? Solely to maintain his power. That’s it. So why hasn’t anyone done anything to stop this? BECAUSE NOBODY KNOWS…until TODAY.
Once you have watched, I urge you to pick up your iPhone, Macbook, iPad, and Dell (yikes) and BLAST THIS TO THE WORLD!
We’re the same Facebook generation than got Obama elected as the President Of The United States of America. Remember? Like I said, when we work together, there’s nothing we can’t do.
