Justice4Survivors

1994-2018! Can you believe it's 24 years already? Yes, 24 years have now passed since the start of Genocide against the Tutsi in which an estimated one million women, men and children were brutally massacred. Of them were my both parents, my three sisters and countless members of my extended family. I survived. Like most of you readers, i ask myself what to do with this bonus gift of life?
