Barefoot Artists -


The healing project in Rwanda.

Terry Tempest Williams in Finding Beauty in a Broken World has this to say:

"There is an uncomfortable corollary between the "hate radio" in Rwanda, the RTLM, used as an instrument of Hutu extremists to further their agenda of fueling and igniting the genocide, and the "shock jocks" that flood the airwaves in the United States with their simplistic and charged rhetoric to ignite the masses against "environmental wackos" and "feminazis." It is a hair's width between intolerance and hatred, between verbal abuse and physical violence. A cockroach in Rwanda is a Tutsi. A "varmint" in America, according to Michael Savage, is a liberal."
