Today, Frances MacLoed brings us to beautiful Tennessee. Here’s what she says about it:
“The state of Tennessee encompasses quite a few notable cities, but I decided to focus on the beautiful landscape of the Great Smoky Mountains. Growing up, our road trips often lead us through Tennessee, and for a small girl from the great plains of Kansas, the hills and mountains were cause for awe and car sickness.”
Since reading criticism of KONY 2012 (which is what I just deleted), watching the movie and doing some research of my own, I now understand more of what Invisible Children is all about.
It’s about advocacy.
It’s about making a madman’s name so well known he can no longer slip under the radar.
It’s not about sending aid.
It’s not about white men saving the black ones.
If like me you tend to be skeptical (I am training to be a journalist after all), you can read more in this interview about what Invisible Children is all about.
I’ve decided to just be thankful that someone is trying to do something about evil in this world instead of tearing them down. You can too.
100 percent agreed.
