Weaving Unity 

To repair a country after a genocide, in a nation like Rwanda, where the killers and the survivors still live in the same neighborhoods, takes a lot of time, to say the least.

It takes longer than the hundred days that it took the men with machetes to kill at least 800-thousand people in the spring of 1994.

Remember what Janet told us about master basket weaving. It takes time too.

"Through weaving,” says Janet, “we've brought back our culture. We've restored talking. Families are forgiving each other."

I was skeptical that weaving could foster such reconciliation.
