Wordy Wednesday (“Surprise Me”)

Before anything else, please watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc&feature=g-all&context=G2f28be6FAAAAAAAAAAA

I know it’s long, but please watch it. It’s for the Kony 2012 campaign:

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.

In other news, this week’s Wordy Wednesday is a short story called “Surprise Me.” It was for a writing prompt about relationships formed through the internet, and as this is a blog, I thought this would be an appropriate place to share it. 🙂

Again, if you could please watch the Kony 2012 video, I — and a whole lot of other people — would be very grateful. Thank you!

  1. I LUUUUUURVED your story, it’s one of the best of yours! Thanks for pointing out the video, it’s unforgettable…I can’t believe this kind of stuff goes on with 99% of the world not knowing anything about it.

    • YOU ARE THE SWEETEST PERSON EVER, TERESA!! 🙂 Thanks so much for reading my blog all the time and commenting and everything!! And as for the video: I know, right? We read a book on a similar thing, using child soldiers in Africa, for AP lang last year (it’s called “A Long Way Gone,” by the way), and I can’t believe people are still doing that. It’s disturbing beyond belief.

      • 🙂 Thanks, Julia. Same to you, you special person, you!! 😛
        Kody vaguely reminds me of Hitler; even though their mottos are nothing alike, they both caused a lot of bloodshed so they’re both brought to mind.
