Summary
Precious time has been spent on protracted debate over the term "genocide." Meanwhile, regardless of what politicians and activists choose to call it, a colossal tragedy has torn Darfur apart. In March of 2006, NBC's Ann Curry traveled to the border between Chad and Sudan to cover the conflict that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. Curry tells the stories of people caught up in the violence: a mother, an orphan, an aid worker, and others who have been largely forgotten as Arab-on-Christian and sometimes Arab-on-Arab killing continues. Curry also talks to New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof about Darfur's future and what can be done to shape it.
