im not leaving

Carl Wilkens was the only American who chose to stay in Kigali, Rwanda, through the 1994 genocide, and he and his Rwandan colleagues helped save the lives of hundreds of people. Carl’s harrowing yet hopeful journey weaves together stories of tremendous risk and fierce compassion in the midst of senseless slaughter. Carl’s storytelling does not stop with Rwanda’s tragic history, but moves forward to the powerful and inspiring recovery process.
