There is only one heroism in the world, to see the world as it is, and to love it” – Romain Rolland

Until we forgive, we do not love. And more than anything else in the world, love is in need of love today. And so, I will close by saying that we must both understand and never forget our true history. It is only through this understanding, this truth, combined with integrity, forgiveness and love, can we hope to break the cycle of violence against others, and ourselves. This is a very personal responsibility for each and every one of us.”- Keith Harmon Snow , from his  speech ` The Emancipation of the Rwandan People` given at
the convention of the Rwandan People’s Government in Exile (GREX)Paris, France
December 2023
