In the fall of 2015, my husband and I made our home in Tri-Cities, WA. We have since fallen in love with the area and the people here. This place is growing and still has so much potential. And working together, I know it can happen. But who’s here? What has been done? And what is left to do? With Tri-Citizens, I’m going to find out. Each month, I’ll interview another neighbor, so we can get a bigger, clearer picture of who we are as Tri-Citizens and what we can do to make Tri-Cities even better.

One million people were killed in a one hundred days by their neighbors, colleagues, and associates in Rwanda from the Hutu ethnic group. The countries leadership in 1994 instigated this misguided hate and stripped an entire ethnic group, the Tutsi, of their humanity, equating them with cockroaches. The weapons of mass destruction used in this massacre against the Tutsi and the moderate Hutu who helped them, weren’t bombs or guns. One million people were beaten and hacked to death by clubs and machetes. The survivors of the genocide are reminded of the torment they endured daily by the physical scars, deformities, and acquired diseases they’ve learned to live with. The most difficult hurdle in their journey however, isn’t visible. It’s the scars etched into their hearts with the one true weapon of mass destruction… hate.
