(KSL Salt Lake City)   Mother whose daughter was killed during the Rwanda genocide has forgiven the man that killed her, so much so that they are now friends and live near each other and shop at the same market. I smell a new buddy comedy in the works   ( ksl.com) divider line

On Monday, Rwanda marks the 20th anniversary of the beginning of 100 days of bloody mayhem. But the genocide was really in the making for decades, fueled by hate speech, discrimination, propaganda and the training of death squads. Hutus had come to resent Tutsis for their greater wealth and what they saw as oppressive rule.
Rwanda is the most densely populated country in mainland Africa, slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Maryland but with a population of more than 12 million. The countryside is lush green, filled with uncountable numbers of banana trees.
The Hutu-Tutsi divide may be the country's most notorious characteristic but also its most confounding. The two groups are so closely related that it's nearly impossible for an outsider to tell which the average Rwandan belongs to. Even Rwandans have trouble knowing who is who, especially after two decades of a government push to create a single Rwandan identity.


And the winner of this years most out of place sentence is...

"Given how we were told that the Tutsis were evil, after the first family I just felt like I was killing our enemies."

"But, once I discovered how delicious their Rolls were, I knew they couldn't be evil!"

Prof. Frink: And the only true way to know your enemy's heart is to see it sitting loose on your coffee-table.


You have to ingest it to truly know and experience its contents.

lymond01: I guess I would have to say forgiveness is only viable when you know your enemy's heart. I'm not sure people can decide to forgive on their own. I'm not sure they should. If their enemy is guilt-ridden and asks for forgiveness, it seems like that's the important piece.

Horror has a face, and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies.
