[Monitor] As I watched President Paul Kagame take the presidential oath of office at his inauguration in Kigali a few days ago, I couldn't help but go back 23 years ago to a starkly different time.

I was 13 at the time and my family had found refugee in Hotel de Milles Collines -- better known today as Hotel Rwanda.
