Africa is Going to Break My Heart.

The Congo is on fire…again. Rebels and conspiracy and murder and rape. Thousands of refugees and counting. The footage is horrifying, but what got me was hearing the palpable exasperation of the aid workers being interviewed, and realizing that I’m starting to know how they feel.

I stood there in the middle of the hallway of the McKay building not sure whether I wanted more to scream or to cry. “Why can’t we stop this!?”

Perhaps the question is so vexing because the answer really is, “We could.”
