Rusesabagina in the House

Ah, when to the heart of man
Was it ever less than a treason
To go with the drift of things,
To yield with a grace to reason,
And bow and accept the end
Of a love or a season?
--Robert Frost

The General Manager of the hotel in Hotel Rwanda, Paul Rusesabagina spoke at a forum at the Marriot Center today. He told his story, and mentioned a few things that I thought inspirational. He said that no matter what happens, no matter what circumstances occur, there is always hope--God will provide a way. This idea echoed the pretense of Elder Eyering's talk in the Marriott Center two weeks ago about God's power of deliverance.

Mr. Rusesabagina said that bad leadership created the problem in Rwanda; he challenged us to rise up and help some one, to stand up and make a difference. An excellent forum, I thought--I want to watch Hotel Rwanda now (I've seen parts, but never the whole thing all the way through).
