Romeo Dallaire's Freedom Encouraging Speech Discusses Rwanda

By: Jennifer Gosnell - Published: • References: rwandainitiative & youtube
This freedom encouraging speech is both inspiring and enlightening. Romeo Dallaire describes journalism as the "voice of democracy." This is a topic that he knows deeply about. Following his work in Rwanda taking on the Rwandan genocide as a Canadian representative with the United Nations, Dallaire has been regarded as an international hero for his work. He hails journalism in such a way because he knows firsthand how important exposure to these issues and ongoing crises are and how little they truly get.

One of the most esteemed figures in international development, Dallaire has been influential in understanding the Rwandan civil war that resulted in the deaths of so many and the ongoing rebuild that has been happening ever since. Dallaire is the author of the esteemed book on the subject 'Shake Hands With the Devil.' His speech was in honor of the five year anniversary of the Rwanda Initiative in 2011 at Carleton University, Ottawa. Stats for Rebuilding After a Genocide Trending: Older & Chilly
