Throughout class, while looking at horrid pictures of sit-ins and while reading Sitkoff, I am constantly shaking my head, thinking, "I can't believe this ever happened." But it didn't even cross my mind that this is still going on in the world today. The violent, inhumane actions taking place in Darfur at this very moment parallel the inhumaneness shown 50 years ago, in a world that some think, is so far ahead of what we have been in the past. Individuals (including myself), countries, and the world as a whole have been slow to act against what is wrong, apathetic in their ways.

Yes, Doug: they reminded me of Abu Ghraib (those attack dogs . . .)
