Find Joseph Kony

I've known about Joseph Kony for a long time, now -- several years.  He was active in Uganda for many years, and now he's moving between countries, hard to pin down.  He founded the "Lord's Resistance Army," a guerrilla group that initially enjoyed some success as it attempted to set up a theocracy, with him as the spokesperson.  His style is to abduct children and force them to commit awful crimes that destroy their conscience.  For some, killing their own parents.  For others, being sex slaves.  There aren't adjectives vile enough to describe him. 

The US sent 100 troops as advisors, in an international effort to capture him.  And now, there's apparently an independent effort call "invisible children," that is out to publicize this man, so that everyone will know who he is and what he is that he can be stopped, brought to justice.  I was just sent a video clip, about 30 minutes long, that describes the effort:    

Please watch this, even if you've already heard of him.  I think the effort by inviduals is something the clip suggests.
