Those who lost hope are seldom heard, they go in, and that is how the myth, if the hope continues to exist. We may only hear the one side.

peace laureate Denis Mukwege should have lost hope a long time ago considering everything he has faced during his years as a doctor, specialized in to care for the victims of the war.

In the Paul Hansen and Erik Esbjörnsons interview with Denis Mukwege, we understand that he actually lost hope. He ended to believe that the amount of raped women who regularly came to his hospital would reduce. He decided not to be content with treating the symptom, but to go on the disease: war.

against the war, he got many enemies. Someone tried to kill him. He spends the whole of his life inside the hospital’s barbed-wire fence. In Paul Hansen and Erik Esbj√∂rnsons interview we also get to meet Sara Nabuzibu. After she was raped, she took to the death of his hospital and we follow her on the road towards a new future.

For me, is the saying of hope osviklighet a burden placed on those who have every reason to stop hoping. Perhaps that is why Denis Mukwege has earned his nobel Prize. He reminds us of what I think is the most important thing: hope is not something that we have to conquer alone. It is also a gift that we can receive from others who see that we need it.
