Although Gashumba Yves Fabrice and longs for a peaceful future, he still has a hard time forgiving those involved in the genocide and fears the resurgence of conflict. His friend Umazikungu Beatrice reminds him that kindness toward everyone is the best way to prove that Rwanda can move forward, and it is better to be remembered for acts of kindness rather than the brief satisfaction of taking revenge and being remembered for evil.

"Even [the genocide] in 1994 recently affected me. Although I survived I don’t have hope that it will not repeat and fear I also be killed by a machete, not dying because of age like others. I always have those doubts." Gashumba Yves Fabrice

"Happening or not happening is the responsibility of people. As you committed yourself to overcome evil by good, this should be the heart of all Rwandans, so that bad things would not happen again." Umazikungu Beatrice
