“I should say, however, that there is one hopeful thing that I noticed in Rwanda — that I hadn’t really been looking for, and I haven’t written much about this — and that is the role of religion.

But, “When history functions as a kind of moral catechism, the distance between past and present – ironic or otherwise- collapsed.” – Biel
