Forgiveness means you get off scott-free
In the 90's, when the rwandan holocaust was reported, i must admit i said, "who? what country? oh, yeah. over there." and that's about all the attention that i gave this central africa country - yet in the recesses of my mind, the question of who they are remained. and, ms. ilibagiza shares not only the history and geography of her mother-country, she also eloquently shares how her childhood and early adulthood prepared her to rise above: a. a 3-month slaughter of people from her tribe; b. her having to hide from hutu, with other starving women, in a tiny bathroom; and, c. how she manages to forgive he man who brutal murdered of each of her family members. this story is one of desire, determination and intent. the results of which have and continue to allow ms. ilibagiza to compassionately respond to what exists, so that she may teach others to see possibilities. above "left to tell" teaches,"it's not what happens to you; it's what you do with what you've experienced."
