Hotel Rwanda

I just finished watching the movie Hotel Rwanda. I am numb.

Back in 94 when the genocide happened, I was in college. Like many people in the world, I chose to casually browse through the news and move on to other news. Never paid any serious attention. Hutu millitia slaughtered close to one million Tutsis. I chose to be ignorant.

The movie brings to attention some bizarre facts

Belgians actually created the Hutus and Tutsis based on the size of their noses. French supplied arms to the Hutu militia. President Clinton's administration voted to withdraw UN forces and stalled further UN deployment.

Bone chilling !!!!!

The least I can do is not be ignorant any more. I need to know. I need to find out. If you get a chance, please do so too
