Portraits of reconciliation

Some of my friends enjoy bashing the liberal press. And it sometimes deserves bashing. But I enjoy reading the ¬†liberal news outlets more than the ¬†conservatives ones. Perhaps it is because of such things as “Portraits of Reconciliation,” which will appear in the print edition of tomorrow’s New York Times.

“Portraits of Reconciliation” is a photo essay about men and women in southern Rwanda who have chosen to forgive and seek reconciliation following the ¬†genocide that enveloped the nation 20 years ago. In the piece, eight photographs, accompanied by the words of the perpetrator and the victim, tell horrifying stories of “man’s inhumanity to man” as well as the astonishing stories of forgiveness and reconciliation.
