Editor’s Note: Renewal 

In April I received an invitation to a commemoration ceremony at Hillel House on campus to mark the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda. It came from Judy McLean, a professor of international nutrition who is running exceptionally successful programs to improve child nutrition in Africa (see page 26). A few days earlier, two Rwandan students about to complete their first year of studies at UBC had approached her with a request for help: they couldn’t let the anniversary pass without organizing a ceremony in remembrance of the one million victims.
