"a long way gone" - by Ishmael Beah
This biography is a great introduction for anyone who has entertained the desire to better understand or empathize with soldiers and war in Africa.
love...as you read.
This book gave me a beautiful and challenging graphic snapshot into the backbone of what it takes to survive in the darkest and most unimaginable conditions.
We are so fragile as people.
We are guaranteed nothing.
Safety and comfort are illusions.
