so today i want to bring your attention to a major injustice happening in the world today. specifically in central africa. if you've been around here long enough you know that africa holds a special place in my heart because of the time i have spent there with some really incredible people.
sadly, many people still don't know about a man named joseph kony who has been committing crimes against humanity (including over 30,000 children) there over the last 20 years. his use of force to turn children into soldiers and girls into sex slaves is outright awful... disgusting... cruel... there aren't words strong enough to describe it. HE MUST BE STOPPED.
an organization here in the states called invisible children is fighting to raise awareness of this issue so that he can be caught and stopped once and for all. please take 30 minutes of your time to watch this video. and then pass it on. tweet about it. blog about it. email your friends. we have the power to use social media like never before to get the message out to the world so this can END.

grace and peace,
ps- a huge huge shout-out to my little brother who works for invisible children and who did a lot of the graphic design work for this campaign. i am so incredibly proud to see him using his gifts for the greater good of humanity. absolutely incredible!
