As the ice-cold rain hammered down on the small crowd of about hundred people, I couldn't help but feel that we have largely forgotten. We easily forget most tragedies that happen in Africa. We forget that one million men, women and children were butchered in Rwanda just eleven years ago, we forget that over three million people have died in the complicated wars in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in the last five years, and every passing day, we try forget about the 300,000 people that have already died in Darfur.
