The Story of the Forty Young Martyrs of Buta --- In the midst of a civil war in Burundi, a rural school is attacked by a large force of heavily armed rebels. Ordered at gunpoint to separate by ethnicity – Hutus over here, Tutsis over there – the students choose instead to join hands and affirm their common identity as children of God. Forty are killed and many more others injured. As they die, several young people are heard asking God to forgive their assassins.
