Paul Kagame, president of the country, launched an official 10 days of mourning with torch-lighting ceremony to mark the 20th anniversary of the country's Genocide.
In his speech he made mention of 3 Choices that help Rwanda to move past Genocide:
1. We Stayed Together
2. We are accountable, and
3. We Focus on Peace.
