Hello Mugerwa,

You are an AMAZING spirit !

I read your article and was SO moved I could barely contain myself. I do not know when I have read of a person who touched me so much. You have gone through SO much. You must be tender and kind to your self because this will not get over in your heart, body and mind any time soon. It is too big to experience. Hug yourself when you want to and be kind to your pain. Someone once said "The gift is in the problem. The opportunity is in the problem." While I do not pretend to be God or Allah or whoever is running this messy world, I DO know that you are a chosen person. Chosen to make a difference. Unfortunately, in order for you to find your greatness you had to go through this to prepare you to understand and be able to help whatever is coming next for you. I know it is going to be big and that you are going to honor your daughter by making a difference in memory of her. She did not die in vain. She died in order for you to understand, to feel and to know how to act to make change for the world.

Give yourself time to grieve. Take time to listen to the universe and when the time is right, you will be an important force in changing the lives of many.

My thoughts, respect and love are with you,

Ubuntu(I am who I am because of who we are together),
