..and things will have me quiet for a few days. Well..quieter, at the very least.
Popping in to send you this message .. something short and sweet for this chilly and busy Monday
20yrs ago.. Hell was unleashed in Rwanda
Rwandas genocide is one of the saddest moments of our recent world history
I think we can all learn something from it, if we care to
We learn that hatred can be easily forged
Colonial rule often leaves a deadly legacy..
and propaganda and mind control is powerful.. and can be equally lethal
Our thoughts and prayers go out to both the victims and the survivors.
I admire anyone's ability to forgive such heinous acts ( and I'm not just referring to those who stoked the fires.. and then turned thier backs)
We know we would never want such a thing to happen again, but that was said after WW2
Perhaps.. we are just slow learners
To all those who are still refugees.. to those who had to flee their homes in terror, to the healing and healed, orphans and widows, those who lost family and friends.. and whose lives were changed forever
Heros and villains
