synchronicity, in the first week of March I was compelled to watch Machine Gun Preacher based on true story of a man rescuing African children abducted and turned into soldiers. Within a few days a friend sends me the KONY 2012 video all about the same subject! I knew deep inside this must mean something immensely important.
Firstly, the movie and the KONY 2012 video is bringing awareness to the horrors happening to children in Africa so help can come on a global level. Secondly, the video on Youtube had reached over 77,900.000 views in just 9 days which demonstrates the power of social media as a hyper fast method of sending a message to the world. The video immediately caught Oprah’s attention who quickly spread the news on her Twitter profile with over 9,800,000 followers.
Also the real machine gun preacher, Sam Childers, immediately responded to the KONY 2012 video to clarify who else needs to be stopped in Africa. Read more: click here

Machine Gun Preacher (2011)
The movie Machine Gun Preacher is based on the true story of Sam Childers (Gerard Butler) who goes through a religious transformation and discovers a calling to help children in Africa being abducted and forced into becoming soldiers. You see how a man's passion and purpose can produce life-saving results like building an orphanage for African children who have lost their homes and families.
Childers continues his fight to this day demonstrating great courage, perseverance and passion in his cause to help a suffering nation. This movie helped me become aware of the dire situations happening on the other side of the globe. I am grateful for movies like this AND Youtube for helping me learn more about our world and how we can all be part of a community that helps one another.
Be inspired by movies based on true stories to help you envision what you can transform or change in your life. Recognize the power of Youtube and how it can help educate and bring awareness to subjects you may care deeply about. And when you see evidence of how videos and movies can help bring about a sense of community you can become a meaningful part of a GLOBAL community for change.
