Anour Letter From Sudan Tedx Yonsaai 23 1 2010

To explain the present without past recognizing the past can distort the explanation (Rothe, J., 2000, p.XX).

The current Sudan is a colonial formed Country, that's why I think the War & Genocide are not strange...

No more weapons...development and prosperity for the People of Great Sudan.
