Check out my Medium articles

I write articles from time to time and put them on Medium. For the last week, I have been writing about genocide and Paul Rusesabagina.

It is easy to look at problems like genocide and think that it is too big to tackle, too depressing to think about, and too much to handle. That is unfortunate because there are things we all can do. We can refuse to buy from companies that benefit from genocide. Kirin Beer, for example has a huge contract with the Burmese Army, which is active in killing Muslims and Christians throughout Myanmar. We can write letters to the editor when we read stories about it. We can let our elected representatives know how we feel.

We are not powerless.
