Kony April 23, 2012

I forgot to talk about the Kony Cover the Night event while we were in New Jersey.  We knew ahead of time that we wouldn’t be home for this, which was probably good because way more people outside of Maine participate in stuff like that.  So my mom made shirts, bought the bracelets, and printed posters.  We probably weren’t supposed/allowed to but we stuck our posters all over Princeton’s campus!  Only one sign got torn down but it was awesome to see a ton of runners with the Kony shirts on.  Even more exciting, on our way home we stopped for dinner in Connecticut and a woman stopped us to ask about our shirts.  She said that she had seen Kony stuff throughout her drive from Pennsylvania and had even seen kids putting it up.  In the original Kony video, there was a mock scene with teens running around a city putting things up and it’s really cool to think that that actually happened on the night.  I’ve always wanted to do something like this and the statement that change will take each individual definitely holds true.  I’m so happy that people actually followed through and all over the US, people made Kony famous!
