How do you cope as a survivor after your whole family has been killed in a nightmarish event? Rwandan singer-songwriter Jean Paul Samputu lost his parents and siblings in the 1994 genocide. Years later he discovered that his childhood friend had killed his father. In a moving talk, Jean Paul shares experiences from his nine-year-long journey that allowed him to get over feelings of anger, resentment and revenge to eventually forgive the murderer.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*
