All too frequently humanity sinks to such depravity that it wreaks death and destruction on its own.

What motivates and drives such diabolical crimes against civilization might only be the understanding and the purview of the insane and the Almighty.

Tens of millions have died in genocide this century alone in the Ukrainian famine, the holocaust, Cambodia, Rwanda, Armenia and now possibly Kosovo.

Over 7 million Ukrainians perished in the famine brought on by Stalin's Russia in the 1930s. Over 7 million starved to death under the dictate of a man gone mad.

Tomorrow in Calgary a monument will be unveiled on Memorial Drive to bear witness to this calamity. Civilization's failure must be put on public display so that we can all see the dark side of humanity and hopefully learn.
