Editorial: Love your country

On Sunday, so many people filled Amahoro Stadium. This time it was not to enjoy a football match, but to celebrate Heroes Day. Heroes Day for Rwanda is very important.

On Sunday, so many people filled Amahoro Stadium. This time it was not to enjoy a football match, but to celebrate Heroes Day. Heroes Day for Rwanda is very important.

This is because we remember all the people who liberated the country against genociders. I know we have all heard about how Rwandans lost their lives in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

Many bad things happened and these heroes are the ones who fought to stop these bad things.

As children we should grow up loving our country, just like these heroes. If we do this, then all Rwandans will live in peace with each other. Just like the Bible says in the second greatest commandment, “Love your neighbour as you love yourself.”

If we all love one another, Rwanda will be a very beautiful place to live in. The Children’s Times wishes you a Happy Heroes Day!
