Mental Breakdown of 'Kony 2012' Creator

You probably have already heard of the mental breakdown of Jason Russell, the author of the video for Invisible Children's campaign "Kony 2012".  It's somewhat disheartening to see the untempered criticism of Jason and his organization for working so diligently to bring a despicable man to justice.  Unfortunately, when you garner as much attention as he has, you always draw a slew of naysayers.

I have no doubt the deep conviction and the heightened sense of urgency around bringing Joseph Kony to justice made the criticism and personal attacks difficult to bear.  We can pray for Jason and his family.  And we can still join with him in the important work of ending child slavery and bringing horrific human rights violators to justice.  Hopefully we can all agree on that.
