Praise, protests in Boston greet Rwandan president

Angelique Gasaro said she flew to Boston from her home in Naples, Fla., this weekend to attend Rwanda Day, eager to hear a keynote speech by the nation’s president, whom she credits with turning around her homeland, economically and emotionally, since the 1994 genocide that slaughtered nearly a million people.
