“They should still be here”

“They should still be here”

AN AFTERNOON AT GISOZI genocide memorial yesterday – a first for Sal and the third time for me.

The Irish writer and journalist Fergal Keane, who travelled through Rwanda as the genocide was ending said, “this is not a subject for fine words.” Yet the memorials, selected writings and simple descriptions by Rwandans are both beautiful and intensely moving…

“We remember the victims of the past because they were our family and friends… they should still be here.”

“He who saves one life saves the whole world.” (Talmud)
