‘Try to heal, try to forgive’

first_imgEditor’s note: This is the second installment in a two-part series discussing two South Bend families’ experiences with the 1994 Rwandan genocide, in light of Notre Dame’s commemoration of the 20th anniversary of this tragedy, to take place April 26. Read the first installment here.Photo courtesy of Marie Rose Gatete During the 1994 Rwandan genocide against the Tutsis, in which more than one million people were killed in 100 days, South Bend residents Marie Rose Gatete and Gaetan Gatete, who both grew up in Rwanda, learned of the deaths of most of their close family members over the phone.Gaetan Gatete said most Rwandans living in the United States during the genocide were plagued with uncertainty and relied on secondhand information about their loved ones back home.“I had a sister who was living in Kigali, and that’s where the genocide started,” he said. “I don’t really know the exact time when she died, but I think it was in the first two days of the beginning of the genocide. I don’t remember how I heard the news of how she died, probably from a friend, but I know she died within a day because where she lived was very close to the military compound.“My brother was living close to the airport, so he got killed. I don’t know the exact time but probably within two days.”His parents, who lived in the south of the country, survived for longer than his siblings but could not escape the killers, Gaetan Gatete said.“They tried a couple times to escape, but unfortunately they couldn’t,” he said. “They were stopped and returned to their home. But the whole village … protected them for three months because people loved them. The whole village loved them. Unfortunately, they didn’t protect them until the end.“I don’t know who killed them. People were coming from some other areas, and it’s hard to know what happened because people don’t want to talk because they’re scared of being arrested because they probably participated.”Marie Rose Gatete said she kept in touch with her sister over the phone until she died.“I remember the last time I spoke with my sister before she died, before they killed her,” she said. “I was asking her why they can’t try to get out of the country because they called me on Easter. That was the last time. They called me to wish me a happy Easter. And I said, ‘Why can’t you please try to get out of the country?’“And she said, ‘No. It’s hard. I guess we are ready to die, but we are afraid that they’re going to kill the children this time.’ They had the feeling already.”Marie Rose Gatete’s young nieces and nephews were killed, and she said that was the hardest news to receive.“Even though you’re seeing tears, I’m a very happy person,” she said. “I have no grudges against these people. It’s just the tears of those memories that I wish I had with my parents. I wish I had my nephews and my niece who died too young, at 10 years old, four years old, five years old. Now, they would’ve been like 20, graduating from college. Why were their lives cut short?”Tutsis had been persecuted in Rwanda for decades before the 1994 genocide, and Marie Rose Gatete said she grew up in fear of ethnic-based violence.“My father was killed in what I can call pre-genocide training [in 1990] because … the real genocide happened in 1994, but the killings of the Tutsis started way back,” she said. “In 1959, they killed people. I lost my grandparents in 1959. In 1973, they killed more Tutsis. In 1973, we tried to flee the country, and we were arrested at the border, beaten up.“We came back. They threw my dad in jail. They left my mother with my siblings and my brother, and my younger brother was a year old. They beat him up, so we thought he was dead, and we got home. They had sold our house. The government took possession of all our belongings.”Because of her family’s history, Marie Rose Gatete said her father encouraged her to study in the United States to avoid the dangers in Rwanda.“I remember that [my father] was telling us that he would do anything to help us get out of the country, to help us get education and hopefully have a better life without fear of being killed, being tortured ⎯ what we went through when we were young kids,” she said. “When he passed away, I wanted to keep the legacy I told you about hard working and just keeping my faith. … It was during the hardest time in my life, during the genocide, when I was calling, and they were telling me, ‘This one died. Your sister died. Your aunts ⎯ they died. Your nephew died. Most of the family members.’“But I keep hearing my parents, my mother and my father, echoing in my ears, ‘You can’t give up,’ because there were times when I felt that I was about to give up. But I kept telling myself, ‘You can’t give up, because if you give up, you will let your parents down.’ And I can’t do it. Basically people who are killing my family, they want all of us to die. So if I give up, I will really accomplish what they wanted us to be: dead people.”Marie Rose Gatete and Gaetan Gatete met while studying at Indiana University South Bend, and in 1999, Marie Rose Gatete graduated from the executive MBA program at Notre Dame. Since then, the couple has been active in the local and national Rwandan community, and Gaetan Gatete said he serves as the president of the Rwandan Diaspora in the United States.“Our role [at the Rwandan Diaspora] is to coordinate all those Rwandan areas [in the United States], to teach them to try to promote their activities so, in the end, we get a better Rwandan community … [to] promote the culture and promote peace and transformation in our country and to make the community better and to link our country to the U.S.A., which is a big role that the Diaspora plays.”Part of their responsibility is to share their strength with others and to emphasize their faith, Marie Rose Gatete said.“I came to the point where I truly believe that God will never tempt us beyond our limit,” she said. “He knows better than anybody else what we can handle. If He accepted that I go through this, that I have nightmares sometimes, flashbacks of things I saw on TV, of things I heard from my own sister, my own friends, my people, it’s because He knows that I have the strength to move on and also I have the strength to use that pain as a stepping stone to a better, hopeful life, to not use those as roadblocks to so many things, and also he knows that I have the passion of trying to make peace and trying to really love people.“He allowed me to go through that so I can even be stronger so my sister, who lost everybody during the genocide, can lean on me, and she can cry on me, that my brother who lost parents when he was young can say, ‘I know that I have a strong sister.’ My other sister can say, ‘ I know I have a strong sister.’ My husband, who lost every single person, including parents, can lean on me.”Gaetan Gatete said he is grateful to have survived the genocide and believes his life has a particular purpose.“Fortunately God gave us a way to leave the country,” he said. “I’m sure if we were in Rwanda, we would’ve all been killed. So there’s a reason why we’re here, and there’s a reason why we survived.“And I think once you come to terms with what happened and you accept it, then you try to make meaning out of it, and the meaning is to make this world better. And that’s why, whatever we do, we question ourselves why we exist.”To help others heal, the Gatetes organized a commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Washington D.C. on April 7 that featured survivor testimonies and a speech from someone whose parents survived the Holocaust, Marie Rose Gatete said.As the world remembers the 20th anniversary of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Marie Rose Gatete said it is important to recognize how far the country has come since then.“The bad leadership from before genocide had divided us,” she said. “We had those ID cards that were saying, ‘You are Tutsi,’ ‘You are Hutu,’ and those were like a guide to who should die, who should get school, who should be allowed to university.“But now, the end of the leadership was the genocide, killing people. And now, the good leadership is the leadership that came in and said, ‘People died. People killed. But we are all Rwandans. Let’s put aside that division, what divides us, and embark on a journey where we are all Rwandans, where we can walk together and try to rebuild the country and move on with our lives, try to heal, try to forgive.’” Tags: 1994 Rwandan Genocide, Rwanda, Tutsislast_img read more

The River’s Hugh Jackman is Bleeding for His Art

first_img The River In another fish-related incident, Jackman also cut a finger two weeks ago while rehearsing a scene in which his character, known only as The Man, prepares a fish for dinner. That injury required five stitches. While medics were called to the Circle in the Square Theatre after his on-stage mishap, no stitches were required this time. Directed by Ian Rickson, The River is Jez Butterworth’s follow-up to the Tony-nominated Jerusalem. The play, which had an acclaimed run helmed by Rickson in 2012 at London’s Royal Court Theatre, tells the story of a man and a woman in a remote cabin on the cliffs on a moonless night. The man, while an expert fly fisher, is apparently not familiar with this episode of The French Chef. Those Wolverine healing powers would definitely come in handy right about now. At the evening performance of The River on November 5, Hugh Jackman cut a finger while gutting a fish on stage, according to The New York Times. This led to the Tony winner visibly bleeding on stage for a majority of the play. Related Shows View Comments Show Closed This production ended its run on Feb. 8, 2015last_img read more

The ESM tracks storage in terms of instantaneous power capacity (megawatts) as well as energy capacity (megawatt-hours).Historically, the first quarter tends to be the smallest of the year for storage activity, but Q1 2019 narrowly edged out the last quarter of 2016 for the title of most megawatts deployed.This initial achievement sets the industry up for another record year. Installations in 2019 will more than double 2018, and 2020 deployments will triple 2019, Woodmac analysts predict. The five-year forecast culminates in 4,543 megawatts delivered in 2024, a meteoric rise compared to the scope of the industry today.As for dollar signs, the overall value of the U.S. storage market is expected to double this year to nearly $1 billion. It will rise to $4.837 billion in 2024, analysts predict.More: U.S. storage market sets power capacity record with Q1 deploymentslast_img read more

Grab teams up with BRI to support start-ups through GVV program

first_imgEditor’s note: The article has been updated to include more detail on investment schemes and channels in the second and last paragraphs for clarity.Topics : Ride-hailing decacorn Grab is working with Bank Rakyat Indonesia’s (BRI) investment arm, BRI Ventures, to help start-ups grow to the next level through the third Grab Ventures Velocity (GVV) accelerator program.Under the program, Grab and BRI Ventures expect to commit up to US$10 million to Indonesian startups in cash investment, in-kind benefits, capacity building and mentorship, said BRI Ventures CEO Nicko Widjaja.”The start-ups will receive cash as well as the opportunity to use Grab’s and BRI’s ecosystems,” he said during a press conference on the 2020 GVV launch in Jakarta on Tuesday. “This investment will be made both through new start-up initiatives that Grab and BRI Ventures will implement jointly and through the existing GVV program.” “The two sectors have huge potential,” she told the press. “Food services are trendy while logistics is important in the country. Both are prominent in the digital economy, too.”Grab is currently opening registration for the third GVV batch until March 31 for start-ups in Southeast Asia to join the program.“Grab will provide training for businesses so they can benefit from our ecosystem,” Neneng said, adding that the GVV program would start in April or May and run for 16 weeks.She went on to say that Grab could include a widget of the start-ups’ application in Grab’s app. One example was Grab integrating Sayurbox into its app so Grab’s customers can directly buy Sayurbox products from the ride-hailing app.Read also: Government’s plan to empower MSMEs through omnibus bill faces backlashGrab reported that the 10 GVV graduates had helped 117,000 micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the country since the program started in 2018. In the second batch, GVV trained six Indonesian start-ups and four foreign start-ups from 200 applicants. Neneng said she was hopeful there would be more applicants this year.GVV was part of Grab’s Rp 3 trillion (US$212.321 million) investment in Indonesia last year during which Grab selected 10 start-ups to train.Five of the start-ups are involved in the empowerment of MSMEs, namely MyCash Online, PergiUmroh, Porter, Qoala and Tamasia, while the remaining — Treedots, GLife, Eragano, Sayurbox and Tanihub — are part of the emerging agriculture technology (agritech) industry that focuses on farmers.The third batch of the GVV is part of Grab’s $250 million investment commitment for Indonesia’s technology ecosystem through GVV and other Grab Ventures programs.center_img Read also: Gojek, Grab prices now included in inflation calculation as they ‘grow significantly’Nicko said the two parties were discussing funding the GVV through equity in the future.”BRI invested in two start-ups in the second batch of GVV and we will be more involved in this third batch.”Meanwhile, Grab Indonesia managing director Neneng Goenadi said the third GVV would focus on start-ups involved in small-scale food services, such as warung makan (small restaurants) and business-to-business (B2B) logistics.last_img read more

Key Says Euthanasia Should be ‘Discussed’ 3 Nov 2011Prime Minister John Key believes parliament should debate euthanasia laws – but it won’t be the agenda of a second term National government. His comments came in the wake of the conviction of scientist Sean Davison over the death of his mother.…Key said his personal view is that there is ”an argument for us to look at this issue.” But should National be re-elected at the end of the month ”it won’t be on the government’s agenda. ‘ ‘You’ll appreciate that’s a conscience issue and so it is up to every single MP,” he explained. ”The last vote that we had was on a members bill some years ago. I voted in favour of it going to the select committee. I can’t tell you how the rest of the National caucus would vote.” He was referring to New Zealand First MP Peter Brown’s Death with Dignity Bill in 2003, which was defeated 60 to 57 votes. read more
