This had a big impact on me in high shoocl when my world history teacher had us watch it as a class. My teacher had us promise not to talk about things that happened in the class while watching the movie. What I can say is that no one was tearless. We all understood that what is happening in Uganda is wrong and needed to stop. We decided to join the invisible children club and have pen pals with kids in or near Uganda. My friends name was Derek and we mailed each other for quite a while until one of the kid soldiers took him from his mother and killed her. I only know this because a shoocl girl wrote back to my last letter to him. I always think about what I could do to help and if he is ok. I haven’t gotten anything back so that means Kony still has him or he was killed for not listening to orders. The government doesn’t realize that Kony is another Adolf Hitler. He needs to be stopped so that African children can be safe. I really don’t like knowing that Derek could be alive and doing what someone did to him. I can just imagine how bad he is feeling. I join the 2012 movement to help bring notice to this problem but yet the government still just sits back. Sure Jason went crazy but that doesn’t mean that these kids don’t need us.
