Good day ATS.
If you recall a little bit ago, a certain video spread like a wildfire across the internet, and pretty much any other form of media. I, of course, am
referring to the Kony 2012 Video.
We all had different reactions to watching this video. I would say a fair majority of the general populace only saw the raw emotion that was
strategically placed throughout the video, while others of us wondered about it.
In any case, my intent for this thread is not about the video specifically. My point for this thread is to inquire about a certain aspect of the
'Kony 2012' movement. It was supposed to be today, April 20, 2012, that a massive bombardment of Kony 2012 related items would be blasted all over
the place. (shirts, posters, facebook photo switches, etc)
Well, it is now 8:12 PM in my area, and I have yet to see ONE mention of Kony.
I have my own ideas on why this might be, but ATS, I am curious. For everyone who watched the video and was all about supporting it, what happened?
Did you only care for a day, a week? Did you think just watching a video, and maybe posting it on Facebook was going to bring this man in for
I am genuinely curious why people get super passionate about a subject on a given day, and then sometimes days, or even weeks, later, the movement has
fizzled and any idea of the 'movement' is just a hazy afterthought?
Please be civil in your replies. Thanks
