Roz Carr is an exemple to all of us, especially we women. She has showed that it can be done: making a difference by yourself. How many times have you asked yourself: I am all by myself, so I can't make a difference? She did it, because she felt it was right.

I grew up in Rwanda, and we visited Roz regularly. A trip to Mugongo was always a great joy, especially when we went there to pick up our puppy, thw son of Roz's doigs Tiffany and Flip.

All these and other memories came back when I heard she passed away. Somehow, I thought she would go on for ever. But she won't be gone, really. As my late gradfather said: you are only dead when forgotten by the world.
