I watched Hotel Rwanda last night and as promised to BicycleMark here are my thoughts…

First of all, the United Nations should have intervened, the United States always sticks its fucking nose in the wrong fucking places and when a country needed them most to do something good they were nowhere to be found all President Clinton was in the oval office with that ho.

800,000 people were killed in 100 days. The world stood by…. and did nothing. This should have been about helping your fellow country, didn’t we learn our lesson with the mass amounts of people killed at the hands of Hitler and his militia?

Before watching this, I remember last year for the first time hearing about it on NPR, it had been ten years since and wondered to myself hearing stories that gave me goosebumps up and down my spine, how could have this happened in this day and age?

And as well it raises a good point, how many other atrocities are going on at this moment in the world that we aren’t aware of because the news we receive is mostly censored, North Korea does indeed operate a system of camps, most memorably described in a book
The Aquariums of Pyongyang, by Kang Chol-Hwan

In closing, raise your awareness, get involved locally, volunteer for an organization, do what you can in your community to make it a better place, set an example.
