15 years after the genocide, there is a big hype of movies, books and (even) theaters of what happened. Blessed survivor who are now ready to share their stories with us. Traumatize people who are trying to handle the pain by purring their souls. They’re not afraid anymore to tell the truth. They want to forgive and be forgiven.
It’s hard to close the chapter. But at least we try.
Every story is different and every reader gets touched by something different. “This voice in my heart” touched me.

Gilbert was the lone survivor of the attack at his school, and thanks his enduring faith in God for his survival.
