Million Voices: Rwanda, Rwanda

It is the 15th anniversary of the beginning of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Here is Wyclef Jean singing, with an African children's chorus, his Million Voices, from the Hotel Rwanda soundtrack. (The cookie is disabled unless you click on the video, which we urge you to do.) It's also Palm Sunday; whatever you celebrate (Passover, Easter, happy spring), it would be terrific if you would take a tiny break from celebratory preparations to click on a Darfur, Congo, Zimbabwe humanitarian help link. Rwanda is still in need as well. So are the people down the street (or across town) from you. a subdued ciao-meow...

Update, 6 April 2009: Sadly, it has become obvious that I cannot accept back-links to this or any other post concerning human-oriented material. Nor anonymous comments. If you would like to comment & need to be anonymous, then write to me in English (or Italian, French, Arabic, or Hebrew) -- even an inadequate translation -- & I will do my best to accommodate you. To those who left hateful comments, threats, & sent email to this site about Rwanda, Darfur, Burma, & other countries, I would like to say that you are more to be pitied than scorned, except that I do scorn those who wish death & torture on others. You are not welcome here.
