"If you want to love, you start with your neighbor"—Sula (Zula) Karuhimbi exemplified that spirit during the genocide of 1994.
Igor Espanhol's insight:

"At the time, Karuhimbi, who declared she was born in 1912, which would have made her 82 (though older reports say she might have been 72, or even 69, and it’s nearly impossible to confirm for sure). According to reconstructions from the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium), the University of Texas, and the Kigali Genocide Memorial, she lived alone and would lodge workers to supplement her income as a healer and a sustenance farmer."
