Today's object of outrage

Unfortunately, this commentary (about a mother having to decide which of her children to keep alive) is only available to NYTimes Select members. But it's message is one we all should be hearing: despite all the cries of Never Again, genocide stills happens -- and the world does nothing about it. So much for learning from history. Darfur is a very obvious example of something the world should be speaking out about.

A couple websites with action plans:
Save Darfur
We Can Stop
