Kony 2012: A Perspective on the Hype

I personally will cautiously watch from the sidelines…I am slightly skeptical of the rosy picture painted and the apparent simplicity portrayed of the issue. However I will not disagree that he should be brought to justice but that is not where the solution should end.

This is also another testament of how powerful social media is in today’s digital society.I am in awe of the power a link has in our world today.And to think I had my first Internet experience less than a decade ago…simply amazing.
