Remembering Why We Are Here

On Sunday, Sabra, Selma, Loretta and Julia, accompanied by John our driver, visited the genocide memorial museum in Kigali. Last year John buried the remains of a number of his family members at the memorial. As John explained to the Bpeace members, the memorial is not a sad place, but rather, for many, it is considered home.
What can anyone say, words fail us at these moments, but we all understand what home feels like, and that enables us to understand what John was saying. Love, Golde.
Bearing witness is one of the most important things you can do. It's wonderful that you have all been able to bring caring and comfort across the world. You have a beautiful story of putting your cares into action. Donna from Ann Arbor
It is truly an inspiration to see these women channeling their energy into new activities. It reminds me of Celie in The Color Purple surviving her abusive past to start her own business as a seamstress!
