A score since
you were brought out of terror
we were brought out of tyranny.

The scars are yet visible
as we reach out to grasp hands

but we keep our eyes
focused on our faces.






This is not the “official” offering for Day 28, 
but yesterday was the 20th anniversary of South Africa’s first democratic election (national holiday today)
and this month marks the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide.
In some ways it seems like just yesterday. And in other ways it feels like another lifetime ago.
Although healing continues, the scars will remain for generations.
