The picture is looking better for Western Illinois but is bleak for the rest of the nation. That’s what U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said during the grand opening ceremony for the public transit center in Macomb.
As part of the Western Illinois University Theme Speakers Series War and Peace: From Personal Conflict to Global Resolution, the school will host Dr Joseph Sebarenzi on Tuesday, April 2, 7:00 pm in the University Union Heritage Room.
Sebarenzi survived the 1994 genocide in his home country of Rwanda, but his parents, seven siblings, and other relatives were killed. Instead of seeking revenge, Sebarenzi sought peace and reconciliation.
