Read in September, 2009

I read books about horrific events such as the genocide in Rwanda to help me keep perspective on how blessed my life actually is. This was an uplifting (if that is possible with the subject matter) personal tale of survival and answers to prayers. What Immaculee experienced while trying to escape becoming a number among the million who were slaughtered is inspiring. Her tale of faith and forgiveness is nothing short of a miracle and made me want to invest more time into my own personal prayers. I definitely recommend to others but completely understand why people would choose not to read. Despite the moving message, the bulk of the story weighs heavy on the heart and mind and is not something to be read for pleasure.
