What About Kony 2012?

We watched the ultra-popular Kony video in church on Sunday and had a pretty interesting discussion afterward with parties speaking up on various viewpoints about the video. One of the critiques about the video is that it presents too simple a solution. I picked this week’s coloring page as an example of that very thing. Here’s one of the completed pages from one of our youth…

To me, here’s how simple the problem needs to be. Imagine you live in a village like the one shown in the picture. Then one night amidst loud noises, gunfire, huts in flames, screaming, and yelling someone pulls you outside and says, “Kill your parents right now or we kill you.”

It’s that simple, and it happens just like that.

The simple fact is that it needs to stop.
