  •  Rape of women by individuals as (0+ / 0-)

    acceptable is one cultural problem; promiscuity among men and the acceptance of frequenting prostitutes are other problems as all have contributed to skyrocketing HIV rates. However, rape as a military tactic remains a particularly chilling development, along with the recruitment of child soldiers.

    •  Absolutely. The stories I have heard about (0+ / 0-)

      the rape of children (I hesitated to use that phrase in my first comment) is fairly chilling in its own right. Rape as a strategic weapon is very old and like the use of other horrific weapons that have been banned, something that we must try to eliminate. My friends also have heart lifting stories about reconciliation in Rwanda. The power of forgiveness and the healing of the human heart and mind is always miraculous. Our power to reach out to one another in love and respect is thankfully more prevalent than our worst instincts.
