Uwamariya Victoire & Kabuto Noah

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Kabuto Noah is curious about the trauma he witnesses in children who are not old enough to remember or have experienced the genocide, but have been affected by it nonetheless. Uwamariya Victoire tells him about the ways the genocide changed how lives are experienced, complicating everything from family structure to education. Most importantly, Kabuto Noah and Uwamariya Victoire discuss the ways that fear, anger, and sadness are best handled.

"You should fight for good things because you will be rewarded. Never think that, 'because someone didn’t listen to me, I should revenge.' Never think about it in your heart because you will not achieve anything. In any way, never think about revenge, even in history. Whoever wants revenge is never blessed. What you need to do is to fight for the future and do good to the one who did bad to you and show him that you didn’t give it a credit." Uwamariya Victoire

"When I see in Rwanda where we live, there are some families which are poor, you find children cannot go to school because of failing to get school fees....Was it like that before? I normally ask myself if it was like that before." Kabuto Noah
