 Great stuff,thanks to all the students at Holy Trinity,for the introduction.I am Carl Azuz,bringing you today's top headlines.We gonna be talking about story that has been all over the social media lately.

 
But first up.We are looking at Syria.Today is officially being called "a day of mourning“,in parts of the middle eastern nation.This is in response to reports that more than a hundred Syrians were killed on Sunday that includes violence in the city of Homs that some opposition1 officials called a massacre2.Meanwhile the latest attempts at peace talks don't seem to have gotten anywhere,Kofi Annan,a former Secretary General of the United Nations spent two days meeting with Syrian president,Bashar al-Assad.Anna suggested a cease fire and asked for relief agencies to be able to give aid to victims in Syria.When he left Syria on Sunday,it wasn't clear whether Anna had gotten any agreement on those requests from al-Assad.
 
Here's CNN students news.Part of our goal is to inform you about major events going on in the world.That is why you hear so much about the violence in Syria.This is a humanitarian3 crisis,something that represents a major threat to the health and safety of a large group of people.Dozens are reportedly dying in Syria nearly everyday.This violence has been going on for a year.
We say reportedly,because Syria has severely4 restricted the access that journalists can have in the country.That's another big part of what's going on here.In many situations,the world can learn about crisis like this from first hand news report but because of that restricted access,CNN can't confirm the reports from the Syria government or the opposition.
 
 
Another crisis happening in the world,one we reported on last fall,involves Joseph Kony and a violent military group in Uganda.We've seen messages on our Facebook page about this.I've gotten twits from some of you about Kony.Ralitsa Vassileva has this report on the viral video that has made Kony a household name on social media.
 
 
For 26 years,Kony has been kidnapping children into his rebel group,the LRA.
A 30 minute video gone viral online has achieved what policy makers6 and activists7 failed to do,make more people care about the atrocities8 of a bizarre cult,called the Lord's Resistance Army,or LRA,seeking to overthrew9 the Ugandan government.Produced by a non-profitable group called invisible children to create momentum10 for the capture of its leader war lord Joseph Kony.The documentary has gone viral.Tens of millions have seen it,including celebrities,like Rihanna and George Clooney.And donations have been pouring in.The Beauty of Kony 2012 is the starts of the movie.The movie is an entry point to a mission and the mission involves influencing our policy makers,influencing our culture makers,so they can take the steps on the ground from disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of all of the LRA fighters.
 
 
But Kony 2012 has also generated controversy11 for its implicit12 presentation.
 
 
If you are not interested in geographies and the complexities13 of it to know that it's not black and white,to delve14 into that fact that you can't glamorize these stuff.Then I think you have no business in,maybe a change maker5.
 
 
The war is over in northern Uganda.Koney soldiers,now a depleted15 force,fled to Sudan and Central African Republic,but they still hold children captive.
 
 
All right.So many Americans didn't know Kony's name a month ago,now it seems like it's everywhere on social media,and that's what we are asking about today on our blog.Why has this taken off to such an extent on social media?Talk to us at CNN student news.com
