“Holocaust“ comes from the the Greek word holokauston, itself a translation of the Hebrew olah, meaning “completely burnt offering to God"
How many folks in the U.S can point out the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on a map? Not many that I have met, and those that can are rarely truly cognizant of the truth of what is going on in that country. How many even care? You should and here is why…
So much of the violence is attributed to ethnic wars, rebels, or some other buzz term; and all this could not be farther from the truth.
The DRC is under attack, it has been invaded it is systematically being raped for its minerals, and violent rape and mutilation is being used as a tool of terror against citizens.
Rather than attempt to go into depth about some of the personal stuff I witnessed and the stories from witnesses, I challenge you to watch this one hour piece and hear and see it for yourself.
Take a moment away from your 2016 election gawking and from the fear-mongering politics. Learn what is happening to the country that supplies the minerals for your cellphone, your tvs, and some of the country’s weapons. Learn how the devastation in the DRC can affect global warming.
Afterwards, ask yourself: HOW IS THIS HAPPENING NOW AND THERE IS NO OUTRAGE!
