#StopKONY2012 Use your voice to save lives

2012 Is an Amazing Year

Today more than ever.  1 person’s voice can make a difference.  It’s pretty amazing what social media has done to make a difference in the world.  Whether it’s the Arab Spring or live tweeting the Oscars, people are paying attention to what other “normal” people are saying.

I first heard about the efforts of Invisible Children a few years ago through the Relevant Podcast and Magazine.  This amazing movement to stop the kidnapping and enslavement of children soldiers in the LRA was started by a few friends.  They saw the injustice and the suffering and decided to do everything they could to stop it.

Watch this video it is (definitely worth your time):

go to Kony2012.com to add yourself to this movement.

Can you use your voice to make a difference?  Can you use your Voice to change the world?  Can you use your voice to save a life?

When I was in high school I watched the film the power of one.  It was about a young man’s battle against apartheid.  The quote that resonated with me was “A Waterfall starts with a single drop, and look what happens from there.”
