No other topic brings reader response like those I receive when I post moving stories of forgiveness. Stories about Rwandan genocide seem to speak to Fairnessworks.com readers more than any other topic.
A Sunday night series — Forgiveness: A Time to Love and a Time to Hate — on the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) in the U.S. will tackle four different dimensions of evil, cruelty and forgiveness, including this story of the Rwandan genocide. Acclaimed writer, producer and director Helen Whitney explores a compelling range of stories, from personal betrayel to global reconciliation after genocide.
Divided into two 90-minute acts, the film airs Sundays, April 17 and 24, 2011 at 10p.m. ET on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings).
Funding for Forgiveness, A Time to Love and a Time to Hate is provided by the Fetzer Institute and the John Templeton Foundation.
A friend of this blog, Ginny H., shared this information from the Fetzger Institute. I will post more information, along with some supplementary information, in the near future. In the meanwhile, I share a clip from the series about the horrific Rwandan genocide and eventual forgiveness which is occurring among many through restorative justice processes in Rwanda..
Please share this story with friends and post your responses below.
One of the four segments in the April PBS documentary will address the phenomenal forgiveness which is occurring in the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide.
