Myron’s Blog from Congo Entry #2

A few CGI Lead members/organizers and I arose early to visit a Rwandan genocide museum where thousands of mass graves were on site. We took an audio tour of the museum which educated us on the colonial influence, propaganda, severity of the violence, aftermath and personal narratives of genocide survivors. It was the absolute most sobering experience of my life. Disgust and horror hit me first, then I felt encouraged by the strength of the Rwandan people to recover and move onward to their desired prosperity. After the museum, we flew to another part of Rwanda where the International Rescue Committee staff greeted and transported us across the border to the DRC. We had a few meetings on logistics, planning and personal/collective goals from our trip. I believe we have a clearer understanding of our purpose to use networks, resources & influence to innovatively improve a system which unfortunately currently produces a non functional community in the DRC.

  • Myron,
    That is great that you are able to help in this part of the world. They have such a hard life. I am glad that you have the opportunity to work with the Rawandan people and help out as you can. God be with you.

    Myron, it has been a while but if you ever have any accounting questions, please feel free to shoot them my way.

  • Myron,

    I’ve been extremely impressed by your dedication to education and continuing efforts to help people who are in need.

    Our children could use a few more role models like you. Thank you, keep up the good work.

    Congratulations on the Pittsburgh contract! We’ll be rooting for you.
