Countdown to Rwanda

In just four days (not that I'm counting), fellow Point blogger Catherine Claire and I (plus two other friends) will be taking some time off work and leaving on a jet plane for Kigali, Rwanda, to meet survivors of the 1994 genocide--100 days of brutal slaughter that pitted neighbor against neighbor at the tip of a machete. Not only that, but we will also meet the very men who wielded their machetes against the survivors' family members.

We will meet Rosaria, whose husband and all her children, except the one she carried her in womb, were murdered by her neighbors.

We will meet Saveri, who was a part of the group who murdered Rosaria's family.

And, we will learn how they are able to live again as neighbors. That's why were are going--to discover the secret of forgiveness and reconciliation, not just between Rosaria and Saveri, but between countless survivors and perpetrators of the genocide . . .

Stay tuned.
