Day 26 – A Book That Changed Your Opinion About Something
This book really opened my eyes with regard to world politics …… how governments of industrialized nations proclaim they have people’s best interests at heart, but in actuality are driven by power, greed and monetary gain. While millions of people are being slaughtered in Rwanda, Belgian forces pull out of a school where they are protecting Tutsi people and the people are then massacred; U.S. forces remain stationary at the airport because they do not have orders to leave; and French forces let hundreds of Hutu murders pass through the borders into the Congo ……. Hindsight is twenty-twenty, but one wonders how there was so little action taken to stop this atrocity. An incredibly sad read.
