Genocide, the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group is, sadly not new. The Old Testament describes the genocides of Amalekites and Midianites. The Anasazi civilization in the American Southwest was destroyed in a genocide that took place around 800 AD. Genocides have occurred in the Americas, in Europe, in Australia, in Asia and in Africa. The historical frequency has done nothing to reduce the horror, the pain, the suffering, the loss experienced by those who. One of our guests this morning, Korr Garang is a survivor of the genocide in Sudan.
We are also joined this morning by a young woman, Jami Limon, whose formative years were the polar opposite of Korr’s. Growing up in Maryland, with her emotional and physical needs well met by loving parents, she went on to college at JMU and with the click of mouse button made a choice that led her into the refugee world from which Korr had emerged. She says the experience has changed her life. In the spirit of full disclosure I also want you to know that Jami is one of our interns here at Real Life.
