just did a little leisurely friday night screening of documentary footage on genocide.
watched these two [short] films that i got for free from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. (click here to get yours for free, too!)
Carl Wilkens is featured in “Defying Genocide.”
what an incredible man. i cannot possibly say enough about him.
upon watching this, i had to send him a text to thank him for what he did, and what he continues to do. i feel so incredibly honored to know him, personally.
i love him.
last night in the kitchen, my cousin asked me about what happened in Rwanda.
i gladly told him the unfortunate past history of turmoil and sadness. spreading news and educating the youth is a passion of mine. once we do this, we can change the world—and we must educate the adults, too.
as we sit here watching “Beyond The Gates,” i find myself completely uncomfortable.
my heart races and my pulse speeds up. my face turns read. my skin gets goosebumps. my eyes begin to water.
what a complete and utter failure for humanity.
upwards of 1,000,000 people died over the course of 100 days.
the world stood by contemplating the meaning of genocide.
i cannot even begin to describe to you the anger i feel when i see clips or read transcripts of State Department spokesperson Christine Shelley struggling not to term the occurrences in Rwanda as “genocide.”
it pains me and makes me ashamed to be apart of such a race that would (1) do such things to one another and (2) stand idly by and let it occur.
in my opinion, the rwandan genocide was most certainly the lowest of the low happenings in the course of modern history.
current situations in darfur are just as bad and have been taking place since 2003.
where will our generation be remembered when history books are rewritten?
will we fail miserably as former generations have in Rwanda?
or will we stand up, unite, take action and save our brothers and sisters from hell in Darfur?
read. study. learn. listen.
meet. talk. understand.
plant seeds of peace.
ensure a better future.
