I was asked to post a video regarding a post made on Facebook.

Original Post:

Normally I would tell you about all my self taught knowledge on Africa and child army's led by horribly disturbed and evil individuals. I would tell you all about my experiences and how and why people become this way. I may even explain what a 3rd world village looks and feels like and tell you about the joy people have in just being alive. I would beg you to understand what people do with power and money and about how invisible children has been making tear-jerking videos for years and keeping a majority of the donations to pay their employees for their "ministry". I would tell you how Obama has already dropped troops in Uganda and, you'd give me a reason why this is so terrific and humanitarian like. I would tell you that Uganda is passing a bill to execute gays, and that their government and military is as evil if not worse than these warlords because they receive our foreign aid. You would probably tell me that this signifies that our government knows something we don't and make some obscure logical fallacy about deferring to authority. I would suggest that maybe we would actually help people instead of sending army's in to chase a warlord that has already been driven out of Uganda and into the Congo. I would get frustrated trying to explain why this is a media ploy for military interventionism.

Normally I would argue and get involved in the subject, but I just watched a video go viral about a warlord that is one of many, and all I can think to myself is, Will our invasions ever stop? Do people not stop to think that if every person who watched this video actually just got up and went out to go fix these shorts of things, that we would outnumber any army on earth? that we would shake the ground from our very gathering?

But would that be enough for you? Would it change your mind? If you understood how evil the world is, but how beautiful it could be, would you seek the latter and put off the former? If you knew that the greatest mistake of humanity is following misinformation, would you change it?

What if the gravest mistake was to know what needs to happen to fix this situation, and choose to not do it?

But than I ask myself "Do we really even care about each other, or is life just a drop in the ocean to us and everyone else is the drops?"
