Last night Cindy and I rented The Last King of Scotland. The young doctor Nicholas Garrigan was a fictional character in this account of Idi Amin’s ruthless rule of Uganda, but he seemed quite real to me. As I reflected, I thought it was power and prestige that seduced the recent medical school graduate away from the rural mission hospital to work with the new charismatic leader. But at a more basic level I’m thinking it was ego. I’m quite proud of myself for being able to recognize this especially since I have no personal experience with ego getting in the way of right living.
