KONY 2012 - A Step Towards Peace and International Justice

Save Humanity - War Crimes Must Be Stopped.

We tend to forget about the rest of the world, while we live in the safety of our own countries. We tend to forget that war crimes are still happening in different parts of the world as we speak. While I am sitting comfortably at home typing this, while you are in class, or at work, or having lunch, heinous crimes against humanity are happening elsewhere.

I think we have all heard of the child soldiers of Africa. But how many of us know who recruits them? Why they are recruited? And how many of us have given a thought to how we can stop these innocent children's' lives being ruined?

Through a link on my brother's facebook this morning, I got to know of the KONY 2012 campaign.KONY 2012, a campaign by the Invisible Children, aims to stop the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in Uganda, Joseph Kony. Joseph Kony is one of the world’s worst war criminals, and he is listed as No. 1 on the Most Wanted International Criminals List for crimes against humanity and war crimes against the civilian population.For 26 years, Joseph Kony has been abducting children into the LRA, where he turns the girls into sex slaves, and the boys into child soldiers. He forces them to mutilate people's faces, and kill their own parents. Over 30,000 children have had to live through this.

One of the main action plans of KONY 2012 is to create as much public awareness as possible. They are going viral, and not just on the internet, but on the streets too. Posters are available for downloading on their website (CLICK HERE), and everyone is encouraged to post them around your city. An action kit is also available for purchase. A short video, created by the Invisible Children Inc is the main way they plan to create awareness: Through the power of the internet and, as I found it, facebook. You can view the video here:


20 culturemakers have been chosen to spread the awareness, including Oprah, Mark Zuckerberg, Angelina Jolie, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Gates, Taylor Swift and Ryan Seacrest. 12 policymakers have also been chosen to do everything in their power to help with the arrest of Joseph Kony, including former U.S. Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton.

2012 is the year Kony must be arrested. It is the year we, as human beings, must unite and do all we can to stop this mindless killing and bring peace to the Ugandans, to humanity. One quote from the video that I especially like, is "Where you live, shouldnt determine whether you live". You and I have a responsibility to the world, to help create world peace. I support the international effort to arrest Joseph Kony, disarm the LRA and bring the child soldiers home.

Don't just learn about human history. Do your part and shape it. For the better.

14. What do you think about the false lashes? Look great for photo shoots, but way too much for normal days.. Don't really know how to apply them properly either.. Lol..

15. What do you think about the rule of changing mascara every 3 months? I don't really keep track, just change it when it's finished or dried up.. My mascaras don't last that long anyway I don't think..

16. Your mascara? I've been using Maybelline for the past 2 or 3 years, as they gave me so many after the competition! =)

modelling course.

32. Are you clumsy in putting make up?A bit I suppose.. ;p

33. What's the worst make up disaster for you? Too much blush.. Lol..

40 . What do you think about make up in general? It's great because it can enhance a girls' looks instantly, but I don't think it looks good when girls plaster themselves with it every single day..
