Despite all the talk of forgiveness in Rwanda, situations like this are not very common. As Rwandans say, recovery is a journey, and people are at different points along that road.
A few would start a fight again tomorrow if they thought they could get away with it; many are just glad to have moments of happiness with friends and family, pleased with the progress that Rwanda is making, but still really struggling with the after-effects of the genocide. Through gacaca, most adults have engaged with the public reconciliation processes, but many have found it very difficult. In a few cases like Alisa and Emmanuel, however, the stories are stunning.
