Rwanda; Remember the Hope

Rwanda; Remember the Hope

For me the one thing that made Rwanda so amazing was the children and hearing their laughter. That a country can live through something so horrific and yet get up every morning and live their lives with a smile on their face is something that is hard to believe. Every person I talked to about the genocide said they didn’t want Rwanda to be known as the country that went through genocide; they wanted to be known as a country of hope.

Thank you for reading my story; I really encourage you to visit Rwanda, for me it is something I will never forget.
