you should read it.

"left to tell"
by immaculee ilibagiza

the book chronicles the author's harrowing experience as a young tutsi woman trying to survive the 1994 genocide in rwanda - hiding in a tiny bathroom with seven other women for three months - as well as her miraculous escape to freedom. i could not put this book down and finished it in four hours. we think we have it hard, until we see the darkest side of life. then we can realize how truly grateful we should be for the smallest struggles.
