Hotel Rwanda

I couldn't sleep again (and am not sleepy). I seem to be sleeping about 14 hours in 48, and all in the same day. I hadn't planned to watch this on such a bright and cheery morning, but the Spanglish disc was broken.

This is a dramatization of a true story -- a hotelkeeper in Rwanda saved people from both sides of an ethnic clash. He kept more than 1200 people alive by bribery and begging. There were more than a million people who died. This is a painful story to watch, but one that we need to see.
