Rwanda revisited

Happy Earth Day, y’all.

Watched Shooting Dogs yesterday, a film documenting a page from a chapter on the Rwandan genocide, during which an estimated 800,000 adults and children were shot, hacked and beaten to death within four months. Cried and cried and cried in the privacy of home later that night, my whole being wrenched with the shame of what humans are capable of while my soul never sang so strongly for “God is with us”. Lord have mercy for we show none.

It is my sincere hope that you will watch the film someday soon.
