People trying to change the world for the better is the most important aspect of this film. Every one should be more aware of what is going on around the world and stand up for those in need. To make a claim that “Kony 2012” pushed Joseph Kony into hiding is a little far fetched.I believe Kony would have gone into hiding the moment something threatened his power. What forced Kony into hiding is not important, but that some day he should be caught.
Also, having gotten America’s attention in Uganda, perhaps our soldiers can change their governments belief’s to make a better Uganda.
