Forgiveness is the Most Powerful Tool for Change

I survived the Tutsi genocide in 1994, but tragically, I lost my parents, brothers and sister. For years, I suffered in bitterness and desired revenge, especially since my best friend was the man who killed my parents.

Only after emotionally and physically wasting away because of my anger, and a miraculous spiritual revelation that compelled me to forgive him, did I get my own life, health, and emotional freedom back. This deep experience has convinced me that forgiveness is truly the most powerful weapon against hatred, war, and terror that exists today.
