Darfur, Sudan Update

"With privilege comes responsibility."

That's something that we Americans often forget, as does our government. But sometimes our government does get it right. Really. But sadly, that isn't the case -- yet -- when it comes to Darfur, Sudan.

We, along with other countries, sat along the sideline (actually, we were off tending to our own "important" matters) when the Rwandan genocide was taking place. Will we do it again while Sudanese people, real human beings, are slaughtered every day by the thousands?

Religion & Ethics Newsweekly is offering an update on the crisis. Read it and learn more about what's happening. If you are a praying person, please pray for God to bring an end to this matter. If you aren't a praying person, then do what you do.

Yes, I've donated to an organization to help the people directly, but I can do much more by helping to spread the word and get people interested in this unconfortable thing to learn about.

It's such a tragedy, and these people need our help in all kinds of ways. Learn about it, then see what role you should play.
