It is really sad what Kony is doing to these children, making them slave away in an army. What angers me is that this has been going on for more than 10 years, and people are just now bringing attention to it. I think he should be found and punished severely, because the kids in Uganda and Africa in general deserve to have a happy and safe childhood, too.

Before you go around thinking you're going to be some sort of 'hero' for watching a 30-minute video, I want you all to read this.

It's important to get a full understanding of things before you go mindlessly supporting.

Last year, the organization spent $8,676,614. Only 32% went to direct services (page 6), with much of the rest going to staff salaries, travel and transport, and film production.


This is not what an organization that tries to help others should do. -_-

I'm pretty sure he's alive. At least I think he is. Not sure if Wikipedia is trustworthy...

Again, it seemed like a really strong topic, but then in the video, there were images and photos of Kony up close.
Some say, why didn't they catch him then?
Others say, this organization is ripping us off.
And then a few say, America's deporting troops in Uganda when Kony moved to other African countries!

I say, if the organization really wanted to help the innocent kids, the information should be set out straight for all of us to know.

What Kony is doing to the kids is...just sickening to me, making them be slaves, make them get rid of their parents, Kony is a horrible person and should be dealt with severely.

Hearing that story just makes me sad. Why is he doing that to the children? Children have rights!

I'm agreeing with everyone else, the children shouldn't be treated like that.
