KONY 2012

You know, for the most part I think we as the United States have poked our nose in and played world police plenty in the last few decades but when it comes to individuals like this Kony guy I think there must be exceptions made.  After all, this is all about people voicing their opinions and making something great happen for the better of the world.  Not just for oil, or gold, or wealth of any kind it’s for the kids that he is abusing and killing and the families that he is destroying.  I can only hope that someone would do the same for our children if something like this were to happen on American soil.

So do this, take 30 minutes and watch this video, see if it doesn’t hit you in your soft spot just a little bit.  If it doesn’t just chalk me up as a nut and move on but if it does at the very least post this video up on your facebook page or on your blog or give it a good tweet and lets make this happen.

500 Songs For Kids

Quoted from Patterson Hood’s Facebook page:

THE PACK OF LIES (Patterson Hood, Shonna Tucker, John Neff, Brad Morgan and Jay Gonzalez) will be participating in the 3rd annual 500 songs for kids benefit Friday May 1 Smith’s Olde Bar – Atlanta GA Benefiting: SONGS FOR KIDS FOUNDATION – www.songsforkidsfoundation.org The band will be performing Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight.”

SONGS FOR KIDS FOUNDATION is a non-profit foundation that enriches the lives of children in need through music. We bring musicians year round to hospitals, special needs kids camps, and all places where kids are in need.

Kids can suffer from isolation when dealing with an illness or hardship. These same kids, however, wear big smiles as they sing, play and bang on drums with our artists.
