In 1994, the international community looked on as a million people were killed in three months. The international community utterly failed to prevent and stop this atrocity there are numerous interconnected and complex factors that led to international inaction, such as a misguided view of African conflicts, the bureaucratic nature of the United Nations and peacekeeping fatigue in general.
It has been twenty three years since the 1994 genocide perpetrated against the Tutsis occurred but too many it seems like yesterday. It required tremendous efforts to restore hope, trust, unity and peace among Rwandans considering the atrocities they witnessed and lived through within one hundred days. At the time those who executed the genocide did not take into consideration the long term effects of their actions which have continued to affect the younger generation today.
