Paul Rusesabagina was interviewed on The News Hours last evening. The manager of Hotel Milles Collines during the time of tribal genocide in Rwanda 12 years ago has written his autobiography—An Ordinary Man. The man who saved the lives of more than 1,200 people during the 100 days of terrible violence is an advocate for international intervention in Darfur. He sees parallels between what happened in Rwanda and what is now happening in Darfur. He sees the international community taking a similar fateful, disengaged stance.

Paul Rusesabagina believes in the power of words and he believes ordinary people can help their neighbors. I expect his definition of neighbor is similar to the description Christ gave.
