Rukiriza Antoine wants to join the army, so he decides to ask his father, Gasani Gerarid, about his own military service. Gasani Gerarid joined the Burundian army after he fled Rwanda during the 1970’s. He says that it was a very good experience, so he supports his son’s decision to fight for his country. However, Gasani Gerarid also stresses the importance of working hard and supporting a family. Even if Rukiriza Antoine is unable to join the army, his father says that he must find a way to use his skills to make a living.

He then became a man of God and devoted his life to helping street children find a better life in Rwanda. He describes to Daima Lydia how this journey toward faith allowed him to realize the significance of faith in reconciliation for Rwanda; forgiveness must be coupled with repentance in order to begin the healing.
