After watching Hotel Rwanda this past week (in preparation for OneHouse on October 21), my heart was stirred by the crisis in Darfur, Sudan…about three years ago…I felt a deep commitment to pray for this region and wanting to serve there…

I came across this that silenced me…pause and found a story about an exhibition called “The Smallest Witnesses” about children drawing their experiences of the genocide there…

Please take a look at PBS report on this…(make sure you click on the video clip)

Here is an in-depth PBS site on the crisis…

Go to Save Darfur website and get the word out…

A recent article about U2’s Bono’s urging for action in Darfur…

A report from the Human Right Watch entitled “The Smallest Witnesses: The Conflict in Darfur through Children Eyes” (pdf file)

The world is closing their eyes…

again and who will speak for them…who will say…”stop…”
