Very quick read. I was impressed with John's optimism, which increased towards the end of the book. We have heard that, "patience is a heavenly virtue." This young man had a dream to go to America, but it took him years to realize that dream.

I especially liked the end of the book in which he basically sums up why we have the experiences that we have in our lives. It was very insightful and caused me to look at my life in a different way.

I think as a people, we take our freedoms for granted. I think that he along with Imaculee Ilibagiza should share their stories with our current "entitled" generation of young adults.
