If you get a chance, PLEASE watch this movie. It's called, "The Devil Came on Horseback" and you can rent it through Netflix. It's about the genocide in Darfur and it's extremely moving and disturbing at the same time.
Also, check out www.savedarfur.org. These atrocities are STILL happening. There are forms you can fill out on that site to send to congressmen and President-elect Obama to help stop the genocide. Additionally, you can donate to the cause as well.
