Yes, there has been so much hype over the internet about this thirty minute long Kony 2012 video. I am not going to lie, it was definitely powerful and emotional. Though, I also just liked the link, thought about buying a bracelet, and then went on living my own life with my own first world problems. I am not saying that this is the right thing to do by any stretch, but I think that was the general reaction to the video. You think about it a lot for that night, or maybe even that week, but then you just go on living your life without taking any real steps to change anything. I did not even hear that many people mention the Kony video in person, mostly just over the internet, and how far is that going to take you?
Nobody even questioned who the man behind the film really is... Was he biased? Was he honest? Was he giving us the whole truth? Did he have any alternative motives behind the making of the movie? Is the donated money going directly to the cause? I just think that people jumped on board with this guy so quickly, and it makes sense, because he seems to be supporting a great cause. There is no arguing the fact that something needs to be done immediately about the soldier children, but is this the right man to stand behind? I just think that it is interesting how nobody bothered to find other information on the film maker before jumping on his boat. There are rumors that he is not being honest about the money, but I really do not know what to believe. I should it research it more myself; what do you guys think about the Kony 2012 film maker not being honest and up front?
