Those who have the duty to protect them attack them. Darfuris need international authorities to help end a genocide that should have been stopped years ago.
There is nothing that hammers this point home more than driving though middle America, stopping at gas stations in small towns and big cities, and getting to see and interact with those who do not live "inside the Beltway."
The state of LGBT rights in Russia is disgraceful. It's good reason to petition the president for sanctions on Russia or protest in front of the UN. But Russian LGBT rights have nothing to do with the athletes who have put in years of sacrifice and hard work to reach their "one moment in time."
