Kony 2012

Kony 2012

It is a reality that not everyone watches or hears news consistently on a daily basis. I, myself is guilty of this because of so many things I do which left me no time to seat in front of a television. On the other hand, it is also true that not everything that happens in the world is broadcasted to newscast. There are different factors causing this and discussing that can be considered on another blog topic.

This time, I would like to focus about KONY 2012 and I hope I can share with you the same enlightenment that I had after encountering this campaign. KONY 2012 is a campaign raised by Invisible Children to make everyone aware who Joseph Kony is and how everyone is in danger while he is at large and continues to kidnap children to make them his army and sex slaves.

Joseph Kony is the leader of Lord Resistance Army that mainly operates in Uganda. This army operation includes abduction of children to be turned as part of his army of children and girls are turned into sex slaves.  Joseph Kony kills the family of children he abducts so the children are left with no choice but to submit to his orders. Most of these kidnapping happens in the rural parts of Uganda.

We hope that you take part in viewing the campaign video to make Joseph Kony popular. Making him popular will soon lead to his arrest and most importantly save all the children he abducted. This is the only way the atrocities of the leader of the Lord Resistance Army will ever be stopped.  Sharing this video to our friends and family is one of the little actions we can do but it will greatly impact the mission of this campaign.

Prince Philip leaves hospital after heart operation

Prince Philip, 90 year old Duke has been release from the hospital 4 days after the minimally invasive coronary stent in.  Though, question that remains floating is when he will resume official engagements.

In an interview with Fiona Bruce of  BBC, “I reckon I’ve done my bit. I want to enjoy myself for a bit now with less responsibilities, less frantic rushing about, less preparation, less trying to think of something to say.”

“On top of that, the memory’s going. I can’t remember names. Yes, I am just sort of winding down. I am getting rid of things.”

Prince Philip Spent Christmas in Hospital

Queen Elizabeth II in her christmas message stressed on the importance of family during the season. 

The Royal family is very thankful for the recovery of the 90-year old Prince Philip on his heart procedure in  Papworth Hospital, Cambridgeshire.  The prince missed the royal family’s traditional Christmas festivities  after he complaint for chest pain on Friday, 23rd of December. The doctors diagnosis of the chest pain is because of a blocked coronary artery–as a result, doctor’s put a coronary stent in.

“The Duke is in good spirits and will remain in hospital under observation for a short period,” the palace said.
