Left To Tell

Most Recently Read Book:

Left To Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust

By Imaculee Ilibagiza

I am on a roll reading adult novels this month, I think this is number four for me (which is sooooo rare). Crazy as it is, I actually heard about this novel from Danny Gokey on his Twitter and ordered it at the library. This is an amazing story of a woman's trust in God and her survivla through an insane killing spree in Rwanda in 1994. I was on in 8th grade at the time, but I really don't remember hearing about it. How sad is that? I'm really bad at keeping track of current events. To know that genocides like this one still go on in the world I live in make me want to be more aware about what is going on. That might be my a new leaf I need to turn over next week, I think I avoid the news because it's so depressing and it just makes me feel helpless and hopeless but I hate feeling guilty for not even knowing what others might be going through in the world. I definitely recommend this book if you are interested in people's stories of overcoming indescribable hardship.
