An emotional rollercoaster of sorts…from joy to extreme sadness to extreme joy and confusion. While waiting for the motos (local Rwandan taxi motorcycles) to take us to the Genocide Memorial, school children crowded around me wanting their photos taken and a handshake. Then I experienced the weight of the memorial. I couldn't stop thinking about the children that I had just met and how many, their ages, were murdered and forced to murder their friends and loved ones. It's all unimaginable. Still processing my feelings around all that I saw. Next I was treated to a performance by our LEAF Intore Cultural Troupe. These wonderful young men brought a sense of joy and hope and what a gift to see them on their own soil. They were beams of light in a place with a very dark and grim past.
