When reading about the situation in Zimbabwe, we realize the importance of continuing to exert an enormous amount of pressure on shameful President Robert Mugabe. Why are so many people obsessed with this situation in Zimbabwe? The fact is there are many people worldwide who believe in the sanctity of God-given human life and that, as human beings, we are all responsible to see that all people have the right to a life where basic human rights are upheld.
If an election is held anywhere in the world, citizens care about how other fellow human beings are treated. This is the same reason that people continue to speak about places such as the Darfur region of the Sudan. It is inexcusable that people can justify violence and intimidation against someone because their message differs from someone else’s.
May God give the international community the courage and wisdom to continue to insist upon basic human rights for all people.
