Joseph Kony is a man from Uganda, located in Central Africa who kidnaps children when they’re sleeping and forces them to fight the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army). The must not only kill people they don’t know but their own parents also. The boys are handed a gun to fight, and the young girls are used as Kony’s sex slaves. 90% of the army is children, and there are 30,000 children right now being forced to fight. The United States government is well aware of this in Uganda, and last year it came to Obama’s attention. He sent out troops to Uganda help the Ugandan Army track down Kony and bring justice and to disarm the LRA and to free all the children. But a 14 year old boy recently escaped from the army and reported that Kony now knows about the United States’ involvement and is changing his tactics. This means it will be harder to find him. Which is why I’m making this. We need to make Joseph Kony and his crimes well known. Hundreds and thousands of kids are fighting against their will right now and its wrong.
