it was amazing

I have never cried reading a book. Never. Until now.

Khizr Khan is an exceptional writer and his life story is simply incredible. It’s uplifting, powerful, humble, gracious and deserving of attention.

Khizr Khan is a wise man, a patriotic man, a man of faith. He has struggled and worked hard and changed the world in a significant way. His story deserves to be read, acknowledged, appreciated.

I want to thank him and his wife Ghazala. I want to shake their hands, give them big, huge squeezy hugs, and cry with them.

This story is so uplifting, it will make you feel like you can accomplish anything. You can be the better person even if that’s the harder choice to make. This family has chosen honor above all else, and I deeply respect them.

I absolutely 100% recommend this book. It is simply astounding in every way. I am so glad I read this.
