I found the segment on Binyavanga Wainaina so refreshing. It was such a story of hope. Having heard his interview, I no longer look on war and tragedy as a complete loss. Maybe for something good to grow, one must first get rid of what doesn't work. Maybe that is what war, and turmoil do. I am a strong advocate of peace and abhor war and violence esp. when kids are involved but now, through his lens, I can see how it may end up producing some good.
