Rwanda Research


I went to the University of Arizona Library yesterday to get the background for the biography I am helping my friend write.

If you had to be out, it was a beautiful day to wander around.  There was an auto show on part of the University Mall.  A local church was giving out free Eegees (a local chain that has Italian Ice like concoctions).   A good thing for a hot day.

I felt old, as I did went I went to Happy Hour the night before.  All the beautiful young women.  Many were dressed in their graduation gowns, for they were getting their graduating pictures.

That was the fun part of the day.  Reading about Genocide is not fun.  Reading about people cutting their neighbors up with machetes is not fun.

I am learning more about the divisions in Rwanda and what helped to lead to such a mess.  My friend is going to provide the on the ground personal story.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
