Remembrance, Genocide, and Healing

This morning, the minister reminded us that in each genocide there are a few persons who could be oppressors, but who choose to aid the victims, often endangering or sacrificing their own lives. They do not intend to be heroes. They are simply responding to the need at hand. Perhaps we can turn to their example to find the courage to acknowledge the genocides carried out in our own country, and to demand an end to genocidal practices here and everywhere.
