In hopes of raising awareness about the reality of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan, Sam writes every Monday about a key issue in an attempt to stop the atrocity. Doing so may not bring about a wave of change, but it is a small ripple that represents the tide that needs turning.


I've found two great resources this week as the genocide in Darfur rages on.

The first is done by the BBC and is an interactive map showing the various conflict zones in Darfur. Click on the map to see what the latest is in a given area.

The second is at Daily Kos and uses Google Maps technology to get an overview of the destruction that is happening on the ground.

Both resources are valuable for those of us who will never see such calamity on the maps we usually look at. Even now, as I'm looking at maps of Miami in preparation for my and Lynnette's anniversary trip, I can't help but think about how lucky I am. I'm trying to figure out how to get from the hotel to the cruise port and not how to get water so my family can have something to drink while I try to avoid militias and fires.
