A message from Rwanda

This morning started with a chance to meet Bishop Louis of Kigali. He was present during the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. He was visiting the school to talk about the work that he is doing to help the country recover from the genocide, and support children and communities.

There were some very perceptive questions from the students, who were interested in the country and its history. I asked a less perceptive question about the flag, which resembles a landscape, and (like many flags) has colours which are representative of positive aspects, with a bright sun shining down on it.

A real privilege to meet someone present at a moment in history, and who is now devoting his life to repair the damage caused during the genocide.
