James Nachtwey


TED talk with video of images by James Nachtwey

James Nachtwey, the greatest war photographer of our time, and humanitarian, he and his work has inspired me for many years.  He has traveled the world covering wars, and catastrophes, documenting what he has witnessed.
James Nachtwey has risked his life to show us the pain war causes to men, women, children, families, homes, villages, towns, countries and governments.  His images also tell the stories of the inhumane weapons of war.  I believe James risks his life, to bring these images of awareness to us, so we can take action, to never have these atrocities repeated.

This video is graphic, but important.

KONY 2012

In Northern Uganda a rebel leader named Joseph Kony  of the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) began his horrific crimes against humanity by recruiting children and forcing them to kill. Kony does this for POWER only. These children are innocent victims and Kony must be stopped.  Invisible Children's, Jason Russell one of the founders, has began a campaign to STOP KONY by the end of 2012, through social network.  WE can be a part of ending almost 30 years of horrific torture, rape, murder and the brainwashing of children. Kony is wanted by the ICC (International Criminal Courts) for War Crimes Against Humanity.  PLEASE be an advocate and HELP bring Kony out of the bush, to be held accountable for his actions. Save a child, change a life, change a world.

1998 Christiane Amanpour went to Uganda and THIS is her report on 60 MINUTES. After this report Kony continued his horrific crimes for another 14 years. TOGETHER WE CAN STOP KONY NOW!!!!!
