Kony 2012: Jacob


    
As most of you know, my friend, Brock, wrote about the video, “Kony 2012”.  I’m here to tell you about Jacob, one of the kids trying to avoid the African rebels.  Jacob was only 10 years old when his older brother was killed.  Unfortunately, Jacob watched the whole thing happen. Jacob’s brother was being arrested by the rebels, but Jacob’s brother tried to fight back.  And with this act, a guard restrained Jacob’s brother while the other guard took out a panga ( an extremely long knife).  The guard took the panga, and slashed Jacob’s brother in the throat. Jacob was very devastated.  But the guy who made the movie promised Jacob that the rebels would be stopped.  The truth is, the rebels don’t have a point in abducting kids like Jacob and putting them in the army, other than too maintain power.  Unfortunantely, this still goes on in Uganda and we can’t stop Kony because nobody knows who he is.  That’s where we need your help. go to
www.google.com and type in “invisible children Kony 2012”.  Then click on the first link.  Scroll down and be mesmerized.
