Um, it's important to read up on both the currently-ubiquitous Kony meme and the "Invisible Children" charity before promoting them. I realize that those who are spreading this meme are most likely well-intentioned in their slacktivism, but most aren't practicing any critical thinking or skepticism towards it, and that's a problem. Some useful info here:
