Immaculée Ilibagiza accepted our 2011 Spiritual Leadership award on May 18, 2011 for having demonstrated ultimate acts of Oneness. Immaculée is a living example of faith put into action. Immaculée's life was transformed dramatically during the 1994 Rwandan genocide where she and seven other women spent 91 days huddled silently together in the cramped bathroom of a local pastor's house. Immaculée entered the bathroom a vibrant, 115-pound university student with a loving family - she emerged weighing just 65 pounds to find her most of her family had been brutally murdered. Through prayer and time, she eventually found it possible, and in fact imperative, to forgive her tormentors and her family's murderers.

It also affirms all that we've accomplished together in five short years and positions us to extend our efforts in the months and years ahead.
