A survivor of the 1994 Rwanda genocide spoke to Stevenson High School students about his experiences this week. Emmanuel Habimana visited the Lincolnshire school Tuesday. Habimana spoke to students during two lunch periods and also after school. Habimana was 9 when the Hutu tribe embarked on its slaughter of Habimana's people, the Tutsi. Nearly 1 million Tutsi -- about 80 percent of the tribe's population -- were killed in 100 days.
