It's a new month, so here's a challenge: Run a trail you've never run before. https://t.co/niPTR9HRst
On May 18, 2016, Gilbert shares his story and discusses genocide with students involved in Texas Tech’s K-12 Global Education Outreach program in Lubbock, Texas. The program endeavors to build a globally-engaged community of learners through outreach opportunities that foster intercultural understanding and enrich the quality of life for our students and communities in West Texas.
Sometimes the world can be an unfair and cruel place. Yet even amongst the worst of circumstances and in the midst of unfathomable tragedies, hope and happiness prevail.
Gilbert Tuhabonye knows this.
Gilbert has endured great suffering in his life. Yet his message isn’t one of sorrow or anger; it’s one of joy, faith and forgiveness. Driven by a desire to unleash the potential of anyone who seeks it – in running and in life – Gilbert’s indomitable spirit moves everyone he meets. He inspires others to believe that they can achieve anything, regardless of the circumstances or obstacles. He is a living reminder that humanity is greater than the sum of all the world’s injustices. And he is proof that the work of a few – or even just one – can make this world, our world, a better place.
