"Rwanda was an extraordinary experience. I worked with
extraordinary people who are fiercely committed to keeping Rwanda
peaceful and keeping all Rwandans safe, while continuing to
steer their country on a course of reconciliation. Nowhere is
the strength of the human spirit more visible than in Rwandaalong
side the profound loss and the need for forgiveness, is the
indomitable courage of a people who have suffered the unthinkable.
Today, under the strong leadership of President Paul Kagame,
Rwanda has emerged from the horrific devastation of 1994, into
a country of hope...and progress.
It was an honor to work with the remarkable and determined President
Kagame. It was an honor to work beside every Rwandan in my classes.
And I will be forever grateful to the President and his Chief
of Staff for taking such good care of this American."
