The Call of Africa

I just finished watching the Constant Gardner, for the second time. I saw it several months ago--back when Mr.3 was gone the first time. I thought that it was a great movie, nice love story...all that jazz. This time it was very different. Again Mr.3 is gone...but now I have all of that reading about Africa under my belt. I find Africa heartbreaking and haunting. So much pain in so much beauty.

And the UN can't (or won't) do anything. Drop the food and hope that it gets to the right people. Evacuate as soon as something goes effort to resolve anything. Or you could take the opposite view that nothing can be done in Africa, that it is a hopeless cause. Which, just the thought of is more horrible than the reality.
