hi! i'm als & this is my blog.

i write about random things.
these days i write pretty sporatically.
sometimes i completely rave about something, like a tv show but sometimes i write pretty serious things.
i write in short phrases, i like the freedom of not having to write in proper punctuation and grammar.
i'm a christian. i also ♥ music, art, photography, movies, tv & books.

hope you enjoy ♥

Read/watch the FOR and AGAINST first.

FOR: The invisible children KONY 2012 video
AGAINST: The Visible Children article visiblechildren.tumblr.com

Here's what I think in response:
Sure the charity group probably isn't the most transparent of all charities, but that doesn't mean we should go on and stop supporting it altogether.

All advertising aimed to general public requires a lot of money, in the same way in order to make the public aware of this a lot of money has been put in. Of course, it isn't the most ideal situation that a lot of the money is not spent to the cause but we shouldn't stop supporting the ONLY charity trying to make the public aware of the situation.

Supporting an army which itself has been known to rape and kill is probably not ideal. But that is not uncommon for countries such as Uganda, due to its lack of development and lack of education.

As I said, this isn't an ideal situation that we support a charity group that has flaws. But at the same time, we do not live in an ideal world and we are all flawed.

So I say we should support this cause and CAUTIOUSLY support the charity. Because it is better than the alternative, which is doing nothing.
