Darfur - of human interest  
N. Darfur Survivors speak about their experiences and life in a camp.

I put this under "Hope for Humanity" because there is a woman, Amber Henshaw, from the BBC, who has made this communication possible. And the Sudanese speak well of the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) on the ground in Sudan who are providing what food, education and medicine they can.

It is a difficult read for a sunny autumn Friday afternoon. But I am very glad it is available to us. The anecdotes of people linger and last like statistics cannot.

For whatever reason, this exchange choked me up the most so far:

Q: Khaled, what is your favourite part of economics?

Khaled: I studied both economics and politics but I prefer economics. Economic theory can help everyone but a political party can only help people in that party. Practical economics is what I liked most.

... I guess because someone thought to ask a personal question, and afforded someone in a dire situation the opportunity to be an engaged, normal human being.
