I don’t want to write about Grace’s video myself. Not from a political point, anyway. Musically, it’s seriously impressive, and I really liked it. But, when it comes to child soldiers, especially in light of what happened with Kony2012, I don’t feel I know enough to write a useful post. So, instead, try these links if you’re interested.

By this point, I’m sure anyone who wants to see the StopKony video has seen it, so I won’t bother with a link.
