We can no longer delude ourselves into thinking that issues of violence in countries that are geographically and even culturally "far removed" from us, are somehow less important than those in our own backyards. I happen to know this man - as a colleague and friend - and I'm a NL native who has grown up in St. John's. Therefore, because I know some of you, my fellow Telegram readers, or at least, because I know people who know you, a large part of our local community is merely 2-3 "degrees of separation" from what's happening in Sudan (given that my friend here is not separated, in terms of the impact). That, folks, is not far removed at all.
