I learned about Kony earlier today and this video had a huge impact on me. This is what I’ve learned.
Joseph Kony is the world’s worst war criminal. In 1987 he took over leadership of an existing rebel group and renamed it the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
The LRA has earned a reputation for its cruel and brutal tactics. When Joseph Kony found himself running out of fighters, he started abducting children to be soldiers in his army or “wives” for his officers. The LRA is encouraged to rape, mutilate, and kill civilians–often with blunt weapons.
Invisible Children’s KONY 2012 campaign aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice. In this case, notoriety translates to public support. If people know about the crimes that Kony has been committing for 26 years, they will unite to stop him.
Let’s all spread this video and make Kony famous. STOP KONY
Well, It was such a fantastic holiday and I blogged about it on my main blog anyway. The most unexpected twist in December was that on the Eve of Christmas, my grandmother suggested Anjo spend the night since there were no more cabs on the streets at this time, or even if there were, they’d have passengers. It was completely and utterly awkward and sad though.. well no. It was more frustrating. He was up in the pent house while i’m down here in my corner. We decided to meet in the laundry area at 2am and it was really risky since we weren’t supposed to meet anywhere at all because everybody thought we were asleep. Some of the floorboards creaked a little. Gah.
Anyway, I got up early and snuck into his bedroom and woke him up. It was Christmas day and it was really cold. We cuddled there until breakfast time. <3
Nothing much to blog about here.
Although kinda confidential, I hurt Anjo because I hung out and talked to one of my guy friends a lot and it caused so much trouble. Anjo and I almost split because of that and now i’ve also lost his trust. :(
I love days like this. It’s Friday and there’s no school, mom’s home and Anjo and I are good. Can this happiness last? :)
Mom is in a pretty good mood because she has a new BB. Going Christmas shopping a little later in the afternoon, hopefully. Shall buy a new dress and the suede wedges for the anniversary of my grandparents on the 26th. Yes, our family has too many celebrations. Dinner on the eve of Christmas, Christmas Day lunch and then another anniversary celebration. It’s almost their 50th anniversary, actually. Their 49th this year, I hope the world doesn’t end next year so that they can still celebrate their 50th. I’m pretty excited. I love their anniversaries, we usually spend lunch or dinner out with the relatives that came to celebrate with us. I love how our families are so close too.
Watching a requirement concert tomorrow and then a day with my Anjo, finally. I miss our usual Saturdays. I was “grounded” last week and sick so I wasn’t able to spend last week with him. I love Saturdays, although we usually just stay at home instead of go out and then mass with the family. He’s really become part of the family ♥
please let these good vibes last, Lord. please.
I know Christmas is not about wishing or gifts or anything like that, it’s about Jesus and Jesus is love, so I came up with a few things out of love i’d really really want for Christmas:
And of course my list of material things i’m sort of ashamed of because I could go on and on:
i’m going to stop now before this list gets longer. kthnxbye
I miss updating this blog frequently. Updated my theme though.
I’m pretty glad the school’s over for the week. Super irregular schedule this week. Monday and Tuesday, no school yesterday, had school today (it was supposedly a nationwide blackout), no school tomorrow and our class is attending a concert where our teachers are performing on Saturday. This week was pretty dull, to be honest. No practices, Math sucks and too many things to do to actually sit down and read a book like I could be doing right now but nooo, i’m on here blogging about the past events.
Anjo and I have been fighting a lot lately and I really wish I could change this December to make him happier. I really want him in my life, after all the things we’ve been through, I couldn’t really stand losing him. Sometimes I wish he’d take care of me too. I miss what we were when the past incidents happened. I miss how we could go through the day without fighting. I miss how I could always sleep well and know he won’t be doing anything bad. I miss everything about him and I and us.
This time last year was so much more different than now. I loved last year. I miss it so bad. Everything, the unity of the Freshman class, the dances we choreographed, Andrew who was my bestfriend in the midst of it all and this little group we had called the Chocolate Family. I miss Freshman year. I miss being in that comfortable little circle. I miss being partner classes with the Juniors (previous Sophomores) and I miss Du Hast. I miss the colder weather. I miss it. Now? Our Sophomore class is smaller than the rest of the other high school classes, but it’s more broken down into smaller cliques. We never choreograph any dances since Drew left. We’re partnered with the disrespectful and snobby Freshmen. The weather only got colder today, and then it gets awfully hot in the afternoon. I guess nothing stays the same, we have to learn to live with change.
