This is beautiful and it’s amazing to me that it had such a positive outcome and not lifelong hateful grudges, which is probably what these attackers deserved.
This is perfect and beautiful and amazing
Yep, those are tears coming down. This is one of the most beautiful pieces I ever read.
Damn, the level of compassion, strength and understanding you’d need to have in order to do this..
There was a lost mishandled when it comes to the Rwanda Genocides but this side of it, the idea to bring victims and perpetrators together and help them find peace and forgiveness and a way to not only come to terms with what happened but also to make it into a way to celebrate humanity… that aspect of it, that healing side to it that has nothing to do with retribution or punishment and that aims to provide help and closure to victims and means of atonement and repentance to perpetrators… that’s one of the great legacies of post-genocide Rwanda.
This should be possible in more places. This is humanity with all its faults.
