Day 14: Genocide

 Genocide- the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. 

People who engage in genocide are simply blinded by their hate; they don't see anything else. They don't see their "enemies" as humans, they don't see the evil in their actions, they don't see the consequences that wait for them; their perception of right and wrong has been twisted and altered beyond reason. 

It would be a comfort if we could learn from our history, if genocide was left to the pages of our history books, but the bone-chilling fact is that genocide still exists today almost unchallenged. Among the areas of present concern in the world are: Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Burma, Iraq, and Somalia.
