    Beautiful art project. I'm really excited for you. Wondering if you plan on showing this in Rwanda too? I'd love to know what Rwandans think about your work.

      My connection to Rwanda are the brothers who run the Umuryango Children's network. Yohani Kayinamura has been very supportive of the piece...and I'd gotten an endorsement by the Rwandan Embassador back in 2006. I've thought of taking it there...but a large component is the teaching and raising awareness aspect...which is much more needed here, than there. My hope is to have all the pages full of handprints and it permanently set up in a Rwandan Memorial building here...similar to say the Holocaust museum.
