When you’re dreaming with a broken heart, The waking up is the hardest part, You roll outta bed and down on your knees, And for the moment you can hardly breathe, Wondering was she really here? Is she standing in my room? No she’s not, cause she’s gone.
The co-founder of Invisible Children, the charity behind the viral campaign KONY 2012, has been arrested for alleged drunkenness, masturbating in public and vandalising cars.
He describes himself as a radical, rebel soul and dream evangelist. In March last year, he revealed his inspirations to PMc Magazine: “If Oprah, Steven Spielberg and Bono had a baby, I would be that baby.” … …….. ….. ……?
I could say so many different things, but you’ll all be offended because you’ve most likely been sucked in by the video or are awaiting your little KONY 2012 package with a precious bracelet. As mentioned in the video, it was an experiment and it was a success and should be renamed IGNORANCE 2012. In an official account of the $13.7 million it raised in the 2010/11 financial year, $8.8 million was allocated for expenses — including filming costs, transportation and production.
I’ve said this before, but I will say it again. The footage in the video is 8 years old and the LRA have not been present in Uganda for over 6 years. This is blatant dishonesty and is simply propaganda. Joseph Kony is no longer a threat, has been chased into the Congo and is now starving to death. If you have not heard of the LRA or the previous issues in Uganda then you’ve probably been leading quite a sheltered life, yet I urge you to do your research as peace has been established in Uganda. However, if you still feel the need to help the families of Uganda, I applaud you, but Invisible Children is not the way to go about it. Russell is obviously dropping a few biscuits with your money. Oh, and make sure you can point to Uganda on a map in case anyone asks you.
I’m always walking backwards, catching up on history. The yesterdays will forever haunt me, so thank you for the memories. And now I’m just a forgotten quote from the book that no one wrote. A dried up well and an unheard wish, lush lips with no one to kiss. To be alive is to be alone and to love is to lose it all. So hang your head when the curtain falls. Nothing is ever going to change.
“Now that you have my heart, I’m pretty much an empty cavity inside. For lack of a better term; heartless. I will now treat each woman I meet with a passive aggressive contestiousness that will ruin relationship after relationship, for many years to come.”
