The Darfur Tragedy

As much as we like to pretend that we live in a civilized world, there are still areas of the earth where atrocities take place on a daily basis. Why do we all simply sit back and do our damndest to forget about it? When have the words "never again" felt as hollow as they do now? If we want the slaughter of innocent people to end the perpetrators brought to justice, we need to demand that the countries of the First World stand up for the abused victims in these Third World countries. It's time for the killing to stop, once and for all.

Take a look at the Coalition for Darfur blog. It does a great job of bringing these crimes to the light of day.
