The Passion of the Present (the essay)


  • -

    In Darfur, a region in western Sudan approximately the size of Texas, over a million people are threatened with torture and death at the hands of marauding militia and a complicit government. Genocide evokes not only the moral, but also, the legal responsibility of the world community. Under international agreement, a nation must intervene to stop a genocide when it is officially acknowledged.

    "Officially" is the key word here. So far, no nation in the international community has "officially" acknowledged the truth: Sudan is a bleeding ground of genocide. In this void, the Sudanese government continues to act with brutal impunity.

    Thankfully, there are individuals working in human rights organizations who are watching - and witnessing - and organizing, in support of the victims in Darfur. These individuals represent, for all of us, a personal capacity to bear witness to the passion of the present; one candle lit against the darkness.

    However, before one can light a candle, someone has to strike a match: a donation to any of the human rights organizations active in Sudan, contacting your government representative, local newspaper, radio and t.v. station. Our individual activism is essential for the candlepower of witness to overcome and extinguish the firepower of genocide.

    This world has long endured wars that take lives. Let us be part of one that saves them.

Abid does not only mean slave -- it means BLACK. In other words, to these people black and slave are simultaneous. This is how they have treated the African Christian Sudanese of Southern Sudan in their part of the genocide for twenty years.

Well, in this matter support financially is really needed for the poor places. But this could be the problem we are now facing. The fact that the crisis is globally this is quite impossible for us to help the other country. America is under the long- term recession and President Obama is just starting to impose his new regulations. Medical costs, even with insurance, have skyrocketed so even the most basic of expenses, like a routine check up, are getting unreasonable. People with children often end up there more often. One of the most common causes of kids' emergencies is a simple affliction – an ear infection. Ear infections send kids to the hospital all the time. Most of the time, they resolve on their own, but if there is too much fluid, you may have to get what's called a myringotomy. Myringotomy is a simple procedure where a doctor makes an incision in the eardrum and places a small tube to drain the pus and other fluids out to relieve pressure almost in the same way financial pressure is relieved with payday loans.
