A Beautiful Ray of Sunshine
Restoring Hope to a 1994 Rwandan Tutsi Genocide Survivor
by Janette Umurungi

This book avails the details of Janette’s life from her upbringing in Uganda to her travels throughout East Africa, Rwanda and the Western world as a young adult up to today. It brings tears, laughter and insights to the cultural shocks that we all experience, and the challenges that couples encounter in their marriages. As you read on and meet Muzei, a Rwandan Genocide survivor and Janette’s husband, you will understand that with life, it is not over until it is over. You will also enjoy the many provided lessons about life as you maneuver through its well detailed pages.

Janette Umurungi is a nurse, a sociologist and a Human Rights promoter. She is currently working with seniors and their families in a Long Term Care Facility and she enjoys respect and recognition in her contribution to the healthcare sector. With over 8 years experience in the customer service area and 16 years experience in the gerontological field, Janette is a Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) currently serving as a Resident Assessment Instrument/Minimal Data Set (RAI/MDS) Coordinator. MS. Umurungi regards herself as a caregiver, leader, counsellor and an enhancer, due to the experience that she obtained from her four years of education at Carleton University where she obtained a degree - BA Honours in Human Rights and Sociology. Her brief attendance of some courses towards an MA in Conflict Studies (Conflict Resolution courses) at the University Saint Paul/ Ottawa University accorded her the tools to deal with the caregiver stress that comes with living with her husband, a 1994 Rwandan Genocide survivor with undiagnosed/untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This book is an extremely valuable guide on living with loved ones dealing with PTSD and those who want to fight for their marriages. It will make the readers understand that destiny is real and that it is okay to fight for the ones you love; never give up without a fight.
