The Sisters of Mercy have aided largely in the help for those who were denied education, and who were destitute in their daily lives.

As a critical thinker, I conclude that A Place at the Table demonstrated how world hunger is the origin for environmental and social affairs for America. This film administers what brutal, yet factual documentaries should all do. After the film, Barbie accepted a honorable scholarship to Esperanza College in Philadelphia, where she is currently a Presidential Scholar.

Hand-hygiene compliance is a crucial issue that needs to be addressed by all healthcare providers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States has found that hand washing is "the single most important means of preventing the spread of infection" (20). Moreover, hospitals spend an estimated $50 million annually on antibiotics (20) to combat infections caused by healthcare staff that fail to comply with proper hand-hygiene procedures. A shocking number of patients become even sicker because they acquire healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) while in the hospital (20). Patients enter the hospital to be treated; however, healthcare providers that fail to properly follow hand-hygiene guidelines spread HAIs.

In both Hotel Rwanda and Ghost of Rwanda the evil or bad characters were the Hutus people.
