Rwanda is a tiny country, with huge potential. Most notably characterized by its rolling landscape and friendly, hard-working people, I discovered the Rwanda I hope the world gets to know better- one whose beauty transcends the visual and even inter-personal, and begs to be recognized as a model of productive social and spiritual growth. A model that shows the promise and power of working together, rather than in conflict, towards peace and social harmony. I can still feel the desire for connection through unexpected hugs and waves from children, as well as belief in the productive future for Rwanda as I recall the daily sites of children in uniform walking to their schools along the roadsides. I will always have Rwanda in my heart, and hope that these images inspire you to get to know this beautiful country better.
