Help stop genocide in Darfur

I am a student at Central Valley High School. My class recently watched "Hotel Rwanda." The movie portrayed violence between the Tutsis and Hutus. During this violence, thousands of people were killed, but the country was able to end it in 1994.

However, genocide is occurring right now in Darfur! It began in February 2003. Four hundred thousand civilians have been murdered and 2½ million people have been displaced. Darfur is not getting enough media attention. Here in the United States, not many people are aware of this violence and genocide.

Are we going to stand by and let this violence continue? Thousands and thousands of people were killed during the Holocaust until countries banded together to stand up to the tyranny. Why has the violence been able to continue? People, come on, let's get together to do something about it! The story >>>>>>>>
