A Candle For Remembering

A Candle For Remembering
May this memorial candle lights up the historical past of our beloved Country: Rwanda, We love U so much. If Tears could build a stairway. And memories were a lane. I would walk right up to heaven. To bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken. No time to say goodbye. You were gone before I knew it And. Only Paul Kagame knows why. My heart still aches with sadness. And secret tears still flow. What It meant to lose you. No one will ever know.

Let us remember Our People

Let us remember our people, it is our right

You can't stop thinking

Don't you know Rwandans are talkin' 'bout a revolution It sounds like a whisper The majority Hutus and interior Tutsi are gonna rise up And get their share SurViVors are gonna rise up And take what's theirs. We're the survivors, yes: the Hutu survivors! Yes, we're the survivors, like Daniel out of the lions' den (Hutu survivors) Survivors, survivors! Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights et up, stand up, don't give up the fight “I’m never gonna hold you like I did / Or say I love you to the kids / You’re never gonna see it in my eyes / It’s not gonna hurt me when you cry / I’m not gonna miss you.” The situation is undeniably hurtful but we can'stop thinking we’re heartbroken over the loss of our beloved ones. "You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom". Malcolm X

Welcome to Home Truths

The year is 1994, the Fruitful year and the Start of a long epoch of the Rwandan RPF bloody dictatorship. Rwanda and DRC have become a unique arena and fertile ground for wars and lies. Tutsi RPF members deny Rights and Justice to the Hutu majority, to Interior Tutsis, to Congolese people, publicly claim the status of victim as the only SurViVors while millions of Hutu, interior Tutsi and Congolese people were butchered. Please make RPF criminals a Day One priority. Allow voices of the REAL victims to be heard.

Everybody Hurts

“Everybody Hurts” is one of the rare songs on this list that actually offers catharsis. It’s beautifully simple: you’re sad, but you’re not alone because “everybody hurts, everybody cries.” You’re human, in other words, and we all have our moments. So take R.E.M.’s advice, “take comfort in your friends,” blast this song, have yourself a good cry, and then move on. You’ll feel better, I promise.—Bonnie Stiernberg

KAGAME - GENOCIDAIRE

Paul Kagame admits ordering...

Paul Kagame admits ordering the 1994 assassination of President Juvenal Habyarimana of Rwanda.

Why did Kagame this to me?

Why did Kagame this to me?
Can't forget. He murdered my mother. What should be my reaction? FYI: the number of orphans in Rwanda has skyrocketed since the 1990's Kagame's invasion. Much higher numbers of orphans had and have no other option but joining FDLR fighters who are identified as children that have Lost their Parents in Kagame's Wars inside and outside of Rwanda.If someone killed your child/spouse/parent(s) would you seek justice or revenge? Deep insight: What would you do to the person who snuffed the life of someone I love beyond reason? Forgiving would bring me no solace. If you take what really matters to me, I will show you what really matters. NITUTIRWANAHO TUZASHIRA. IGIHE KIRAGEZE.If democracy is to sell one's motherland(Africa), for some zionits support, then I prefer the person who is ready to give all his live for his motherland. Viva President Putin!!!

RPF committed the unspeakable

RPF committed the unspeakable
The perverted RPF committed the UNSPEAKABLE.Two orphans, both against the Nazi world. Point is the fact that their parents' murder Kagame & his RPF held no shock in the Western world. Up to now, the Rwandan Hitler Kagame and his death squads still enjoy impunity inside and outside of Rwanda. What goes through someone's mind as they know RPF murdered their parents? A delayed punishment is actually an encouragement to crime, In Praise of the ongoing Bloodshed in Rwanda. “I always think I am a pro-peace person but if someone harmed someone near and dear to me, I don't think I could be so peaceful. I would like to believe that to seek justice could save millions of people living the African Great Lakes Region - I would devote myself to bringing the 'perp' along to a non-happy ending but would that be enough? You'd have to be in the situation I suppose before you could actually know how you would feel or what you would do”. Jean-Christophe Nizeyimana, Libre Penseur

Rwanda-rebranding

Rwanda-rebranding-Targeting dissidents inside and abroad, despite war crimes and repression Rwanda has “A well primed PR machine”, and that this has been key in “persuading the key members of the international community that it has an exemplary constitution emphasizing democracy, power-sharing, and human rights which it fully respects”. It concluded: “The truth is, however, the opposite. What you see is not what you get: A FAÇADE” Rwanda has hired several PR firms to work on deflecting criticism, and rebranding the country.

This should be seen in the context of accusations that Rwanda has plotted to kill dissidents abroad. A recent investigation by the Globe and Mail claims, “Rwandan exiles in both South Africa and Belgium – speaking in clandestine meetings in secure locations because of their fears of attack – gave detailed accounts of being recruited to assassinate critics of President Kagame….

Ways To Get Rid of Kagame

How to proceed for revolution in Rwanda:
  1. The people should overthrow the Rwandan dictator (often put in place by foreign agencies) and throw him, along with his henchmen and family, out of the country – e.g., the Shah of Iran, Marcos of Philippines.Compaore of Burkina Faso
  2. Rwandans organize a violent revolution and have the dictator killed – e.g., Ceaucescu in Romania.
  3. Foreign powers (till then maintaining the dictator) force the dictator to exile without armed intervention – e.g. Mátyás Rákosi of Hungary was exiled by the Soviets to Kirgizia in 1970 to “seek medical attention”.
  4. Foreign powers march in and remove the dictator (whom they either instated or helped earlier) – e.g. Saddam Hussein of Iraq or Manuel Noriega of Panama.
  5. The dictator kills himself in an act of desperation – e.g., Hitler in 1945.
  6. The dictator is assassinated by people near him – e.g., Julius Caesar of Rome in 44 AD was stabbed by 60-70 people (only one wound was fatal though).
  7. Organise strikes and unrest to paralyze the country and convince even the army not to support the dictaor – e.g., Jorge Ubico y Castañeda was ousted in Guatemala in 1944 and Guatemala became democratic, Recedntly in Burkina Faso with the dictator Blaise Compaoré.

Since 1994, the world witnesses the horrifying Tutsi minority (14%) ethnic domination, the Tutsi minority ethnic rule with an iron hand, tyranny and corruption in Rwanda. The current government has been characterized by the total impunity of RPF criminals, the Tutsi economic monopoly, the Tutsi militaristic domination, and the brutal suppression of the rights of the majority of the Rwandan people (85% are Hutus)and mass arrests of Hutus by the RPF criminal organization =>AS International]






Depuis plusieurs semaines, les média français nous vendent du Ancel à haute dose (neuf articles dans Le Monde, cet excellent quotidien ; RFI et France Inter aux ordres, etc.). Leur unanimité très sélective, leur refus systématique de publier tout ce qui contredit de la manière la plus autorisée les affirmations d’Ancel, nous amènent inévitablement à soupçonner une manœuvre planifiée de longue date et savamment orchestrée.

On sait grâce à un récent article de RFI[1] que certains députés[2] sont à la manœuvre pour amener le Président Macron à opérer, aux risques de blesser les peuples et gouvernements Burundais et Congolais, un acrobatique rapprochement avec le général-président–à-vie Paul Kagame, dernier criminel de guerre à se maintenir au pouvoir en Afrique..

 On ne peut que se souvenir que jadis, à l’époque où Sarkozy jouait avec les dictateurs un jeu qui reste à éclaircir, de savantes manœuvres étaient opérées par une petite équipe élyséenne pour complaire à Kagame en tentant d’enterrer l’instruction sur l’attentat du 6 avril 1994. Les spin-doctors élyséens de Sarkozy avaient imaginé d’utiliser la vieille technique dite « de la chèvre », en livrant Rose Kabuye aux juges, afin de permettre à Kigali d’avoir accès au dossier d’instruction. Dans le même temps, le sieur St Exupéry travaillait furieusement l’opinion publique en publiant et republiant le même ouvrage à peine remanié (tiens ! Ancel a fait la même chose plus récemment !) . Mais St Exupéry est aujourd’hui grillé par les condamnations encourues dans le dossier rwandais comme par les publications pour le moins hasardeuses publiées dans son ex-journal l’Ebdo.

 On peut légitimement se demander si, aujourd’hui, faute de pouvoir aussi ouvertement intervenir dans le dossier d’instruction de l’attentat du 6 avril 1994, Ancel n’est pas – en substitution d’un St Exupéry grillé- le nouvel « envoyé » offert en pâture à l’opinion publique française afin de la préparer à voir son président s’humilier et humilier notre pays devant Kagame, comme le souhaitent certains “ diplomates” et autres député(e)s….

 Le silence insupportable du gouvernement français qui a pourtant en mains toutes les preuves nécessaires pour démonter les dires et, entre autres, la revendication par cet ancien officier français d'un crime de guerre,  ne peut que nous laisser croire que ce monsieur n'a jamais été plus aux ordres qu’aujourd’hui. La seule question est de savoir aux ordres de qui !

=========
Sinds enkele weken verkopen de Franse media ons Ancel in hoge doses (negen artikelen in Le Monde, dat uitstekende dagblad; RFI en France Inter op aandringen van de media, enz.) Hun zeer selectieve eensgezindheid, hun systematische weigering om ook maar iets te publiceren dat de beweringen van Ancel op de meest gezaghebbende wijze tegenspreekt, doen ons onvermijdelijk een lang gepland en kundig georkestreerd manoeuvre vermoeden.

Uit een recent artikel in RFI[1] weten we dat bepaalde parlementsleden[2] proberen om president Macron een acrobatische toenadering te doen zoeken tot generaal-president Paul Kagame, de laatste oorlogsmisdadiger die in Afrika aan de macht is gebleven, met het risico dat hij de bevolking en de regeringen van Burundi en Congo schaadt.
 Men kan zich slechts herinneren dat in het verleden, toen Sarkozy een spel speelde met dictators dat nog moet worden opgehelderd, door een klein Elysée-team slimme manoeuvres werden uitgevoerd om Kagame een plezier te doen door te trachten het onderzoek naar de aanslag van 6 april 1994 te begraven. De spindoctors van het Elysée van Sarkozy hadden zich voorgesteld de oude techniek van "de geit" te gebruiken, door Rose Kabuye aan de rechters over te dragen, om Kigali toegang te geven tot het onderzoeksdossier. Tegelijkertijd werkte St. Exupéry verwoed aan de publieke opinie door hetzelfde werk, nauwelijks herzien, uit te geven en opnieuw te publiceren (zie! Ancel deed recentelijk hetzelfde!). Maar St Exupéry is nu opgebrand door de veroordelingen in de Rwandese zaak en door de op zijn zachtst gezegd gevaarlijke publicaties in zijn nu ter ziele gegane krant Ebdo.


 Men kan zich terecht afvragen of Ancel vandaag, omdat hij niet openlijk kan tussenkomen in het onderzoek naar de aanslag van 6 april 1994, niet - in de plaats van een uitgebrande St Exupéry - de nieuwe "gezant" is die aan de Franse publieke opinie wordt aangeboden om haar erop voor te bereiden dat haar president zichzelf en ons land vernedert ten overstaan van Kagame, zoals sommige "diplomaten" en andere afgevaardigden willen doen....

 Het ondraaglijke stilzwijgen van de Franse regering, die alle bewijzen in handen heeft om de beweringen en onder andere de bewering van deze voormalige Franse officier van een oorlogsmisdaad te weerleggen, kan ons alleen maar doen geloven dat deze heer nooit meer onder de bevelen van de Franse regering heeft gestaan dan vandaag. De enige vraag is wiens orders!

========
For several weeks, the French media have been selling us Ancel in high doses (nine articles in Le Monde, that excellent daily newspaper; RFI and France Inter at the orders, etc.). Their very selective unanimity, their systematic refusal to publish anything that contradicts Ancel's assertions in the most authoritative way, inevitably lead us to suspect a long-planned and cleverly orchestrated maneuver.

We know from a recent article in RFI[1] that certain deputies[2] are maneuvering to bring President Macron to operate, at the risk of hurting the people and governments of Burundi and the Congo, an acrobatic rapprochement with General-President-for-life Paul Kagame, the last war criminal to remain in power in Africa.

 One can only remember that in the past, when Sarkozy was playing a game with dictators that remains to be clarified, clever maneuvers were carried out by a small team from the Elysée Palace to please Kagame by trying to bury the investigation into the attack of April 6, 1994. Sarkozy's Elysee spin-doctors had imagined using the old technique known as "the goat", by handing over Rose Kabuye to the judges, in order to allow Kigali to have access to the investigation file. At the same time, St. Exupery was furiously working public opinion by publishing and republishing the same work, barely revised (look! Ancel did the same thing more recently!). But St Exupéry is now burned out by the condemnations incurred in the Rwandan case as well as by the publications that were, to say the least, risky and published in his now defunct newspaper Ebdo.

One can legitimately wonder if, today, because he cannot openly intervene in the investigation of the attack of April 6, 1994, Ancel is not - in place of a burned St. Exupery - the new "envoy" offered to French public opinion in order to prepare it to see its president humiliate himself and our country in front of Kagame, as some "diplomats" and other deputies wish to do....

 The unbearable silence of the French government, which has in its hands all the necessary evidence to disprove the claims and, among others, the claim by this former French officer of a war crime, can only lead us to believe that this gentleman has never been more at the orders of the government than today. The only question is to know whose orders!

THE DEMOCIDE IN RWANDA BY THE RPF TUTSI LED GOVERNMENT: MOST OF OUTSIDERS BELIEVE THAT THE ENTIRE POPULATION IN RWANDA IS ESTIMATED TO 12 MILLION WHEREAS ACCORDING TO OUR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, THERE ARE NOT MORE THAN 6 MILLION.


The Rwandan Hitler Kagame using his misuse (modus operandi)of the Rwandan parliament called for the BBC to be banned in the country after its Untold Story documentary on the 1994 genocide.
Kagame's main programme to be realized in 2034:
(a) Killing the majority Hutus inside and outside of Rwanda;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to the majority Hutus through imprisonment, slavery, indefinite lockdown etc.;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the majority Hutu ethnic group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births (Eugenics) within the majority Hutu ethnic group;
(e) Forcibly transferring Hutu children to the Tutsi minority families and RDF after being brainwashed in IWAWA island located in the Kivu lake.
The BBC has defended its decision to broadcast a documentary about the Rwandan genocide that has sparked complaints from the country’s government, saying it had “a duty” to make the film.
Rwanda’s Untold Story, which was broadcast on BBC2 on 1 October, investigated allegations that current president Paul Kagame was involved in shooting down a plane carrying one of his predecessors – an event which sparked the 1994 conflict that cost thousands of lives.
Kagame responded by telling the Rwandan parliament that the BBC had chosen to “tarnish Rwandans, dehumanise them” and accused it of “genocide denial”.
On Wednesday Rwandan MPs approved a resolution calling on the government to charge the documentary-makers with genocide denial and revoke the BBC’s licence to broadcast in the country.
A BBC spokeswoman responded on Friday: “The Rwandan genocide raises extremely painful issues but the BBC has a duty to investigate difficult and challenging subjects.
“We believe this programme, which was produced by a BBC current affairs team in London and broadcast in the UK, made a valuable contribution to the understanding of the tragic history of the country and the region.”
She said the BBC regretted calls for sanctions against it and criticised the “threat of direct measures against an independent broadcaster” which she described as “inappropriate”.
The country’s minister of foreign affairs Louise Mushikiwabo described the documentary as an “attack on Rwanda and its people” and said her government was contemplating taking action against the BBC.
She said: “My government reserves the right to respond, on its own timing, in a manner commensurate with the weight of the offence.”

The BBC programme included interviews with American-based researchers who say most of those killed may have been Hutus killed by members of Kagame’s Rwandan Patriotic Front. It also contained interviews with former aides of Kagame, accusing him of being behind the April 1994 shooting down of a presidential plane that sparked the genocide.

As One We Will Win 💚💚!

Rwandans have decided to go up against the RPF criminals, rapists and Terrorists. All path-ways start with providing the names' list of Kagame's bunch of RPF leadership, death squads outside of Rwanda, all of them took and still participate in the Rwandan Genocide. The data on participation in the Rwandan Genocide comes from records of the number of RPF/RPA Generals and individuals accused of crimes against Humanity, War crimes, Crimes of Genocide and Crimes against Peace nowadays where the Rwandan Genocide is worsening throughtout the country because of the lack of the World Community's Intervention that should start with ending impunity and arrestings mandates of RPF infamous criminals. 
Rwandans will make the pitch to show what the horrifying Kagame's Rwanda is actually. There is no more need to get issues proofing that the Rwandan Genocide has always been carried out by The Rwandan Hitler or Paul Pot = =>Paul Kagame and his RPF who invaded Rwanda as a Ugandan army from October 1,1990 onwards.

Letter to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda Regarding the Prosecution of RPF Crimes




Justice Hassan B. Jallow

Office of the Prosecutor

International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda

Arusha, Tanzania

Dear Mr. Prosecutor,

As you prepare to brief the Security Council on June 4 on the progress of the Tribunal, we write to urge you once more to prosecute crimes committed by the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) in 1994. With the ICTR scheduled to complete all trials by the end of this year, we ask that you immediately announce your intention to pursue these cases so as not to leave the Security Council with the false impression that the Tribunal's core work at the indictment level is completed.

The Tribunal has achieved considerable success in bringing to justice those most responsible for the Rwandan genocide. However, a failure also to address the RPF's killing of tens of thousands of civilians will result in serious impunity for grave crimes committed in 1994 and would leave many with a sense of one-sided, or victor's, justice. Such a result would seriously undermine the Tribunal's legacy.

As you know, a UN Commission of Experts in 1994 documented crimes committed by the RPF and concluded that the RPF had "perpetrated serious breaches of international humanitarian law and crimes against humanity." The Commission's report, which was instrumental in establishing the ICTR, "strongly recommend[ed]" that the Security Council ensure that the persons responsible for these crimes be brought to justice before an independent and impartial tribunal. The UN High Commission for Refugees estimated the number of victims to be between 25,000 and 45,000 from April to August 1994. While not of the same nature or scale as the genocide, these serious crimes fall within the ICTR's jurisdiction and should now be prosecuted.We understand why the Office of the Prosecutor has waited to prosecute the RPF cases until other cases have been completed. Prioritizing cases against the masterminds of the genocide involved gathering evidence inside Rwanda and having witnesses travel from Rwanda to Tanzania to testify at the Tribunal, all of which required the cooperation of the Rwandan government. When your predecessor, Carla Del Ponte, announced in 2002 that the ICTR would investigate RPF crimes, Rwandan officials prevented witnesses from traveling to the Tribunal, forcing the suspension of several trials for months.


Now that most of the genocide trials have been completed or are drawing to a close, concerns about Rwandan obstruction are not as pressing. Given that your office has investigated RPF crimes for more than ten years now, and based on our own investigations, including with witnesses who have spoken to ICTR investigators, we believe your office has sufficient evidence to request that indictments be issued. Even if Rwanda once again prevented the travel of witnesses from Rwanda to Tanzania to testify at the Tribunal, your office could rely on witnesses from outside Rwanda who are willing to testify.  We are aware that some of them have written to you personally, seeking justice for relatives lost at the hands of the RPF in 1994.

We were extremely disappointed by your June 2008 decision to transfer files of RPF suspects from the ICTR to Rwanda for domestic prosecution. We fear the reason was your concern that cases involving RPF crimes are too politically difficult for the Tribunal to adjudicate because of the likely need to indict senior figures in Rwanda's military or current government.

At the time of your decision, the Tribunal had just denied two requests to transfer indicted génocidaires to Rwandan courts because they would face unfair trials. The Tribunal concluded, among other things, that defense witnesses might be unavailable, thereby jeopardizing suspects' fair-trial rights. In one of the cases, the Tribunal concluded that the Rwandan judiciary was not independent of political interference.

Since that time, the Tribunal has denied three additional requests for genocide suspects to be transferred to Rwanda. Of the total five cases, three have already been confirmed on appeal. All decisions have emphasized the fear that
potential witnesses face, ranging from intimidation and accusations of genocide ideology (a criminal offense in Rwanda involving any act deemed to espouse hatred or lead to violence) to actual violence and death.  Foreign jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, have dismissed requests for extradition on similar grounds in the past year.

Despite these decisions by both the ICTR and foreign courts making clear that genocide-related cases would face political interference and unfair adjudication in the Rwandan courts, your office  decided to hand over to Rwanda the even more politically sensitive RPF files for domestic prosecution in June 2008. When answering questions by the Security Council on this decision at the time, you stated that your office would monitor the proceedings closely and would recall the case to the ICTR if the trial did not meet international standards.

Within weeks of your decision to transfer the RPF files, a Rwandan military court charged and tried four RPF officers with war crimes for the 1994 killing of 15 civilians, 13 of them clergy. The trial proved to be a political whitewash and a miscarriage of justice, betraying the rights of victims' families to obtain justice for their loved ones. Both the prosecution and the defense presented the killings as spontaneous reactions by soldiers overcome with grief for their fellow RPF officers who had lost relatives in the genocide. The court heard testimony only from witnesses supporting this version of events, despite evidence you transmitted to Rwanda's prosecution service indicating that the killings were part of a planned military operation involving more senior officials. Two of the officers confessed to the killings and were sentenced to eight years in prison, reduced to five years on appeal. Two more senior officers were acquitted after a very brief trial.

Despite your commitment to the Security Council to ensure close monitoring of the trial, you sent an observer for only two preliminary detention hearings, one trial day, closing arguments, and the verdict. That cursory presence did not constitute diligent monitoring. Human Rights Watch and several Rwandan nongovernmental organizations and journalists monitored the proceedings.

Since the verdict of the Rwandan trial on October 24, 2008, Human Rights Watch has repeatedly asked for your official assessment of the trial and has urged you to recall the case and try it in accordance with the available evidence. Our most recent discussion was in your office on March 23, 2009.  On each occasion, you told Human Rights Watch you were still looking at the file and would provide a final assessment in due course. You have not offered an assessment, and it is now more than seven months since the verdict and three months since the appellate decision.

We call on you to include in your June 4 briefing to the Security Council an assessment of whether the Rwandan trial complied with international fair trial standards and, if you find such standards were not met, to recall the case to the Tribunal. We understand that you have discretion in deciding which cases to pursue, but we call on you to seek indictments against more senior RPF officers in relation to whom we believe your office has gathered substantial evidence and to pursue such cases vigorously. If necessary, we ask that you request the Security Council to extend the Tribunal's mandate beyond December 31, 2009, to ensure adequate time to prosecute these cases.

We strongly believe that your mandate as Chief Prosecutor will not be fulfilled until you prosecute alleged RPF crimes. Failure to do so will undoubtedly taint perceptions of the Tribunal's impartiality and undermine its legitimacy in the eyes of future generations. Seeking justice for the victims of these RPF crimes neither denies the genocide nor equates these crimes with genocide. It simply asserts that all victims, regardless of the identity of the alleged perpetrator, have the right to seek redress for the wrongs done to them.

We thank you in advance for your attention to this pressing matter.

The Truth can be buried and stomped into the ground where none can see, yet eventually it will, like a seed, break through the surface once again far more potent than ever, and Nothing can stop it. Truth can be suppressed for a "time", yet It cannot be destroyed. ==> Wolverine

Genocide masterminded by RPF

Finally the well-known Truth Comes Out. After suffering THE LONG years, telling the world that Kagame and his RPF criminal organization masterminded the Rwandan genocide that they later recalled Genocide against Tutsis. Our lives were nothing but suffering these last 32 years beginning from October 1st, 1990 onwards. We are calling the United States of America, United Kingdom, Japan, and Great Britain in particular, France, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany to return to hidden classified archives and support Honorable Tito Rutaremara's recent statement about What really happened in Rwanda before, during and after 1994 across the country and how methodically the Rwandan Genocide has been masterminded by Paul Kagame, the Rwandan Hitler. Above all, Mr. Tito Rutaremara, one of the RPF leaders has given details about RPF infiltration methods in Habyarimana's all instances, how assassinations, disappearances, mass-slaughters across Rwanda have been carried out from the local autority to the government,fabricated lies that have been used by Gacaca courts as weapon, the ICTR in which RPF had infiltrators like Joseph Ngarambe, an International court biased judgments & condemnations targeting Hutu ethnic members in contraversal strategy compared to the ICTR establishment to pursue in justice those accountable for crimes between 1993 to 2003 and Mapping Report ignored and classified to protect the Rwandan Nazis under the RPF embrella . NOTHING LASTS FOREVER.
