arcana imperii :: the book of j


nine million

this past week i enjoyed an unplanned mini african cinema festival in my own living room, featuring hotel rwanda, yesterday and nirgendwo in afrika (nowhere in africa). not only was i terrified and anguished by the continuing evil and horror inflicted by humanity on itself even at the most personal levels possible, but also moved by the beauty and power of landscapes inhabited by splendid, brilliant and inspiring beings some of which survive even in death. some of these beautiful people are children who along with others from the rest of the planet amount to nine million refugees.

nine million refugee children who need help to live, learn and play.
