Rwandan Refugee Shares Stories of Triumph of Human Spirit, Warns Readers the World is Getting the Wrong Recovery
Born and raised in war-torn Rwanda and Kenya, Uwacu believes that her mission, after witnessing so much death and destruction as a young girl, is to redefine the worth of a single human being. “Human is so fragile and so short term in this physical shape; he cannot afford to waste his time stuck in the trap of material addiction. If the governments and the bankers have chosen to make the economy their number one issue, you do not have to allow the illusionary numbers on a computer screen to become your spirit’s number one concern.”
As the global community finds itself bombarded daily with messages of economic strife and corporate collapse, “The Nightmare of a POSITIVISION: Yes We are Dying. But we are still Breathing” offers a much-needed reminder to concentrate on the internal rather than the external. Uwacu uses examples from her own life to illustrate that, no matter how bad things may seem, they could always be worse. “Ask [me] about loss before you give up,” she writes. Follow her inspirational journey in this riveting new book.
Louise Uwacu refers to herself as “a Canadian made in Africa.” After becoming a refugee she traveled to Montreal in 1998, spending the next 10 years there. She received her degree in international relations from the University of Quebec and currently resides in the Vancouver area. Her goal as an author is to sell books to raise money for education. Her 2008 documentary, “Positivision in Mali” followed her journey to the African villages of Mali in January 2008. She now hosts her own talk shows and writes for her website. Her shows are available online at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/louiseuwacu.
