Waging And Winning A Peaceful Revolution To Unite And Heal A Broken Rwanda

Authored by Dr Theogene Rudasingwa 

This is my testimony. It is the story of a Rwandan family caught up in the larger, tumultuous, and often tragic story of Rwanda. Though the history of Rwanda as a nation spans centuries, this testimony casts a glance at the two violent revolutions (1959, 1990) and their catastrophic consequences that have affected every Rwandan and Rwanda's neighbors in the Great Lakes region of central Africa. Each revolution began with a promise, only to betray it. We repeatedly have become a nation of "losers and winners", of "perpetrators and victims", with individuals, families, communities and ethnic groups (Hutu and Tutsi) changing positions in a race beset with death and destruction. 
Rwanda is broken and hurting. All Rwandans, eleven million of them, are dying, alienated, exiled, fearful, traumatized, urgently and desperately in need of healing.
