lighting a candle

last night, candles were lit in Kigali to commemorate the 1994 Genocide.

a vigil was held in the national stadium, with 10,000 candles spelling the word 'hope' in the three official languages of Rwanda.

for the next 100 days, candles will be lit around the world in memory and in hope.

please join this campaign of hope and solidarity.
