Axworthy, Lloyd. "UN Admits Rwanda Genocide Failure." BBC News. N.p., 15 Apr.
2000. Web. 31 Oct. 2010. <http://newscdn.bbc.net.uk/2/hi/africa/
714025.stm>. This interview with several people talks about how the UN
did not get involved in the Genocide. The people interviewed admit to
messing up and they say they will never do that again. This article is from
a World News. It is very known because it can translate the information in
thirty two different languages, so that everyone can read it. This article
taught me how in a big situation people make mistakes. It also taught me
that you need to learn mistakes and apply those mistakes to the future.

Continues Forward." New York Times 6 Apr. 2010: n. pag. Web. 31 Oct. 2010.
16-years-after-the-genocide-rwanda-continues-forward/>. This blog talks
about how this man traveled to Rwanda sixteen years later. He tells readers
how much it has changed and what is different now. The New York Times is a
very credible newspaper. Although I did check and see if the author was
credible and he is. The author has wrote several blogs for the The New York
Times. I have learned that over time things change and most of the time for
the better. In situation it was for the better and Rwanda is truly making a
come back and trying to get things back to normal and up to speed.

information on this page consist of the ethnic groups and their population.
The page also tells how the economy works and who runs most businesses.
This page is called Global Security and has real information. I googled
Global Security and it is credible for its information. This article
enhanced my learning by showing me that their is a difference in the ethnic
groups in Rwanda. Their also different ethnic groups than Hutu's and
Tutsis. The economy relies on the agriculture business in Rwanda to make
"Rwandan Genocide." Wikipedia. N.p., 30 Oct. 2010. Web. 31 Oct. 2010.
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rwandan_Genocide>. This page talks
about how the Genocide started. Also it states about the RPF and how they
tried to take over the government. I first scanned the paper and making
sure everything was credible. I picked the RPF and made sure the
information I got on them was correct. This web page helped me understand
the Genocide better because I thought about what caused the genocide to
happen. This article taught me why the Hutu's did what they did and how the
whole thing began over the hundred days.

This article is about how Rwanda is trying to get their economy going.
Since the genocide their was a drop in the economy, the people in Rwanda
get their earnings from agriculture. This source comes from a world wide
news website. It allows other countries to see the news in their language.
The information on this website is reliable. I learned that taking a big
hit can affect your economy. You always want their to be peace in your
country or it will make your country look bad and if traveling is major for
you, your economy could hurt.

source talks about how the author made a trip to Rwanda and how she was
surprised to good the area looked. She said the cities were a lot safer
their than back in Manhattan. She felt comfortable their and not worried a
bit. Since this information is a first hand account I knew this information
had to be real. Someone could not just make up how Rwanda was and the
things that happened that made the city safe. Although this website is a
travel website the only thing I could find anything unreliable was the
airline flights. This information taught me that people move on from a
disaster. They people in Rwanda know that they have to pick up their
country and make it better so that the economy can become much better.
