IN PRAISE OF ZURA KARUHIMBI - OF - RWANDA!*

Zura Karuhimbi - an amazing woman - an amazing - human-being!
Who saved her fellow human-beings - who life's - were dependent - on her!
Her house - small - tiny - became a refuge for many!
Zura - daily - had - killers - besieging - her home!
They armed with machetes - guns - et all - wanting - demanding - she let them in!
So they could kill those with in her home! - Zura - her arms - rattling - her many
Bracelets!
Zula - refused - each time they came a calling! - Zura - stood up to them - ALL!
She showed - no fear!
The fact is - they - feared her - more! - Zura - turned - their fear of her - against - Them!
Convinced them self's - Zura - were a - witch!
Of cornice - Zura - no such ' Thing '!
BUT - them believing that - Zura - were - armde!
Shacked her many bracelets - and anything that made sounds!
Scaring away the would be killers!
How many - Zura - saved - from death - will never be known!
You see: when asked just how many she saved - Zura - said:
'' How many you ask - look I had more important things to do - than count! ''
Zura - now parsed away - died of natural courses - age in her nineties - or maybe a Hundred - who knows - Zura - were not counting - Zura - had more important stuff to Do - counting were not one of them!

ZURA KARUHIMBI - THE SPECIAL ONE!

It is good to praise strong women, and to remember the silent ones who suffer.
