but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”

Please, join this campaign, reading and signing this petition, support it.
“This campaign has been put together by a group of friends from around the world who are horrified at what is happening in the Middle East and our leaders’ inaction. We come from several different countries, including Brazil, Germany, Israel, Syria, Lebanon, the UK, Canada, the US, Australia, and Indonesia. We believe that on this issue we need public pressure to get our leaders to do the right thing. The campaign is sponsored, and all donations are accepted by Res Publica.org, a global civic advocacy group and a registered charitable organization based in New York City.
Sign the petition and your message will be delivered to the UN Security Council and publicized in newspapers in the US, Europe and the Middle East.”

John is first in his class.
Gifted in mathematics, he wants to be a doctor one day. A few years ago, he lost his mother to heart disease. His father is still alive and lives in Kigali, but he is unable to care for his three sons. John’s younger brother Eddie (6) also lives at Gisimba Memorial Center, but his other brother lives elsewhere.
