The video is gripping. Once you hit play, you'll have trouble walking away. I did. I had never heard of Joseph Kony until I watched this video. I will never forget who he is now.

A group called  "Invisible Children" uploaded this video to YouTube Monday (March 5, 2012) and in just a few days the video has reached more than 52-million people.   The video targets Ugandan Warlord Joseph Kony, a man it claims is responsible for kidnapping thousands of children and forcing them to become soldiers in his army and sex slaves.

"KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice."
