A good article and a good book about an important topic [Jan. 20th, 2005|05:59 pm]
I was reading this article http://www.relevantmagazine.com/article.php?sid=5566

about Hotel Rwanda, and came across a comment link to the best book ever written on the topic of the Rwandan genocides. It's a tough read, but a good read.

"We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families : stories from Rwanda"
by Philip Gourevitch

Prayerfully yours,

I deicided today that to devote an entry to bashing Shrub would only give attention to a child, when there are more pressing issues that deserve headlines and conversation.

Take for example the scapegoating of the low level military folks (who did horrible things btw), while at the same time letting the higherups get off scott-free with regards to the prison brutatility in Iraq. This also deserves our attention.

As has been noted in many reviews of this film, it is hard for an american to view this film with pious eyes when our own soldiers have committed atorcities, and our own commanders probably knew about it.

It was but for a few that came forward that anyone ever found out about this - just as it was but for a few that came forward that we ever found out about Rwanda. In either case, without such witnesses I doubt the world would have given a damn.
