Still I wonder …

The story of Rwanda – as is the story of any genocide – is absolutely wrenching.

Each of the films I am viewing this evening has a scene that particularly tears at my heart and soul: European soldiers arrive to rescue, to evacuate Europeans and North Americans but not Rwandans. They leave knowing the horror taking place around them – aware of what will likely befall those they leave behind.

I watch. Tears fill my eyes.

And I wonder … would I have got on the truck?

And I wonder … who are my brothers and sisters that I abandon today?

The tears slide into my beard.

I can only fall back on grace.

Yet still I wonder …

See you along the Trail.
