Memorial to Victims of Rwanda Genocide

This page is a very humble memorial to the thousands of people who died due to tribalism in Rwanda in 1994.  In 1994, many Rwandans of the Tutsi tribe were killed.  Estimates run as high as 800,000 people killed in about a 100 day period of time.

Tribalism and racism can be very evil.  The tragedy in Rwanda illustrates how evil hatred can be.  The history of tribalism, ethnic tensions and racism can be very deep.  The need to understand history, various perspectives of history and the ability to forgive are essential when there are tensions between groups of people.
