The last line belongs in the body of the email message (copy it exactly--caps too). You will receive via email the first page of the Rwanda Crisis pages. From there you can request further documents by *replying* (keep the subject line intact) with the body of your reply consisting of the "number(s)" of the document(s) you want. You cannot listen to audio files or view gifs this way, but there are many documents you can still access. If this doesn't make sense, don't worry. Send the first email and everything should become clearer. If you still encounter difficulty, please email me and I'll help you out the best I can. You can use this list server to access any part of the WWW. You might for example be intersted in the HungerWeb (

When I die, don't build a monument to me. Don't bestow on me degrees from great universities. Just say I tried to clothe the naked. Say that I tried to house the homeless. Let people say that I tried to feed the hungry.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
