Gilbert has endured great suffering in his life, but his message is of joy! Burundian long-distance runner, author, and motivational speaker is a survivor of the massacres during the Burundian Civil War of the early 1990s. Members of the Hutu tribe invaded Tuhabonye's high school and captured more than 100 Tutsi children and teachers killing most with machetes; the rest were burned alive. Tuhabonye managed to escape and he published his account in "This Voice in My Heart: A Genocide Survivor's Story of Escape, Faith, and Forgiveness"
