It is during this period where there is so much violence against humanity that our voices need to be loud and need to be heard. It is now that we need to remind ourselves the purpose of doing all that we do.
Isn’t it against violence that we stood up in the first place? I ask myself whenever discouragement and fear try to set in. Now is when our stories matter the most. Now is when we need to share our experience the most. This is our purpose. This is our mission.
Hopefully, People will be able to relate with our stories and maybe learn from our past. We are getting the chance to do what we would have wished for someone to do for us before the 1994 atrocities. Killings do not need to be “en masse” to matter and we refuse to be bystanders and watch as people are being denied of their right to live.
I truly hope that our presence in this coming September can make some sort of positive change.
