I read the following article this morning and was impelled to write something about this man.…

Captain Mbaye Diagne, a United Nations peacekeeper in Rwanda, died on the 31st May 1994. It's been 20 years since the genocide...Worried

The country plunged into war and genocide on 6 April 1994, when the plane carrying the Rwandan president, a member of the majority Hutu population, was shot down. Everyone on board was killed. Within hours Hutu extremists seized power and a tidal wave of murder was unleashed against the minority Tutsi population, and anyone prepared to defend them.

“He had a sense of humanity that went well beyond orders, well beyond any mandate."

“It was a very, very difficult day,” says Dallaire, who is now a senator in the Canadian Parliament. “[There were] so many, but it stood out because we lost one of those shining lights, one of those beacon-type guys who influences others.”

A real life hero. Superman :worship:
"The forgotten angel of Rwanda" - a beautiful sad title to the story of this great man.
