History Lessons

So tonight I am going to brave the ice and sleet to go see Hotel Rwanda.
I must admit that at the age of 17 when this was occuring I had no idea what it meant or even where Rwanda was. Little did I know in a mere five years I would have the opportunity to live in that area and actually cross the border into Rwanda. I've heard many tales of adventure and compassion that took root in the volcanoes north of Rwanda in Zaire. But tonight I look forward to watching a movie about the human spirit and the incredible things it can endure in the face of tradegy. Paul Rusesabagina was a man who was capable to live for a cause greater than himself. How many of us are capable to look beyond our circumstances and impact the world? I'll be back with my review next week, but here's what others are saying....Roger Ebert's review and The New York Times.
