Last night I watched "Hotel Rwanda" for the first time. I was disturbed, angry, heartbroken and in tears. How can such a thing happen? How does one survive such atrocities with any faith in the goodness of man?
It is by small mercies.
God places people in the midst of hatred who have a heart for Him. These people risk all to save just a few. But they save them.
The world turns its back because "it's not our cause" and once again we ask, what happens when they come for me? We are our brother's keeper. WE, we cannot keep silent!
God has placed a believer in the seat of the President of Rwanda. Healing and forgiveness are beginning. Only this will prevent further senseless bloodshed in this fragile nation.
What of the other places? What of Sudan? What of the Congo? What of Nicaragua, India...and the list goes on...
God will place some of us in positions of active assistance. The rest of us, what can we do?
