Choices

I recently saw this excellent and thought provoking film.  Dr James Orbinski relates his experience in the midst of diabolical human conflicts, attempting to save lives through his work as a Doctor with, and President of the international council of, Médecins Sans Frontières.

 

There is much to take away from his experience.   A soft spoken, measured man, he talks of having a near 'uncontainable rage' over the circumstances he has witnessed.  And the merest glimpse that this film can allow the viewer shows the reason for this.  He returns to Rwanda, and to Somalia, to revist the countries in which grotesque political situations have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.
He has been amongst the worst of what humans can do, he has stood in the midst of murder, greed, rape, genocide, and attempted to ease the suffering.
