I'm certainly aware that the country has become a success story and here's been a lot of healing within the nation where people have been able... I don't know how they can do it, but they're moving together towards the future. And they've got a good economy.

It's not a utopia or anything like that, but it's amazing what they've achieved post such a horrific event. I've read a lot of books on Rwanda. Sometimes the more I know the less I understand it. Sometimes when I go to speak about Rwanda at various events, I just can't understand why this happened. And it gets distressing to think about it. If I think about it, I get distressed and I can cry. Trying to keep it together now, but it's just hard to make any sense of, I guess.
