Kony 2012 at Peru State College

On Thursday evening in the Peru State Theater, the recently established Peru State College Rotaract Club sponsored the presentation on campus of the Invisible Children's hyper-popular video--now with over 100 million views--about one of the world's most wanted criminals, Joseph Kony, leader of the the notorious Lord's Resistance Army.

Brook Earnest--pictured on the right here with Elizabeth
Warren of Invisible Children on her left--and her fellow club members did an excellent job organizing this event that drew a enthusiastic and interested crowd, as the collected photographs underscore.

The video has created quite a stir, to be sure, and the volunteers, including Elizabeth Warren and especially Ugandan
Komakech Lawrence (pictured on the left) addressed numerous issues, from how Invisible Children spends its money to the whereabouts of Joseph Kony.

The video includes footage of Lawrence and his colleague addressing the audience and questions raised.

The Invisible Children, Kony 2012, web page offers lots of
additional information about the organization and ways that the interested can contribute.

While many questions remain about the organization and Jason Russell's recent
behavior (Russell created and narrated the viral video), the enthusiastic response of the young impresses me.

I hope that come April, this monster gets nabbed and
brought to international court for crimes against humanity.

Congratulates to all the people involved with this event,
most of whom appear in the following photographs.

Well, done!

My family and I attended the Invisible Children's presentation at Peru State College. What an amazing organization! These individuals are dedicating their lives by helping so many others in another country. May Joseph Kony be captured soon!
