Balance is an essential feature to the human life, without balance, life would be disastrous. Generally, a person is well rounded to be both good, and bad, having positive and negative sides. However, rarely there turns out to be someone abnormally admirable or outrageously iniquitous. Some famous and some infamous examples are: Mother Teresa, Adolf Hitler, Martin Luther King Jr., Osama Bin Laden, and more on. I had inferred that as humans and their daily lives developed, the morality would develop as well, resulting the world with less vicious and vile people. After reading the article Joseph Kony On The Move As Manhunt Steps Up, UN Envoy Says by Louis Charbonneau, I have modified my assumptions into a more negative yet realistic way. Even currently, either famous or infamous, the people who bring change to this world are unbalanced. To stop or support these people, many lives are sacrificed along the way.
Kony 2012 is currently the issue. We are constantly progressing and reaching closer to our goal, capturing Kony and freeing the LRA. Most recently we have captured one of Kony’s top officials. This is a positive sign, a big leap towards our goal, yet people debate whether this will help us or negatively affect our progress. Thinking positively, the official might be our key to Kony’s destination, and his future plans. However, who said he would be cooperative in his interrogations with the police? Also, what if the official has no idea what Kony has in mind, and where he currently is? Seeing how he has been associated in the LRA as a top official, it is only logical to predict that he is loyal to Kony. If he was loyal enough to vow death and the lives of his family members, I am sure that he would be glad to take a bullet for Kony. Or perhaps Kony is the mastermind, and does not share his decisions with others. Maybe the official will leak false information and guide us into a trap, our armies being wasting valuable time and money. Whether he is a valuable resource or not, our armies should continue taking action at all times to continuously make Kony distressed.
If everyone in this world attempted to contribute and make a change after watching the Kony 2012, I think that Kony would have been captured already. Honestly speaking, I had not acted upon the video. After I viewed, I only thought how devastating the world was and simply moved on. If every person like me in this world bought the campaigning material and started taking part in all the events Invisible Children had planned, maybe US and the UN might’ve organized a bigger army and Kony might already have been seized. When the world wants to globally change, modify something, it will be the most efficient if everyone was involved. One person might have a spectacular idea, however without people’s help they might not be able to carry that idea into the world. As a living part of the world, we should continuously make the world a better place for all the other living pieces in this world. All the countries and all the people united all together, we will be able to become something invincible, to Kony, and the conflicts we are facing, and will soon be facing.
