I know I have talked ad naseaum in the past about the situation in Darfur and slowed down during the past few months. However, the media is much more on top of the ball than it has been in the past. In fact, NPR has been doing a fine job keeping up with the situation Sudan (and Darfur in particular) the last few days (yes, this is how I spend my short commute time- I have had to find something else to listen to since Howard left celestial radio:).
So, if you are not familiar with what is happening, or would like to educate yourself a bit, here are a few reports worth listening to, so you can keep abreast to the situation and know how to pray and to respond individually.
