  1. Wow, Friend; you rose beautifully to the challenge of 21 words! Sadly, I didn't know anything about this book until I just now read the review on Amazon. You've definitely aroused my curiosity!

  2. OH so true. I do not know this man's story (but now I want to), but my mom is an ELL teacher to many refugees from around the world - Sudan, Burma/Myanmar, ... When I hear of all that they have been through my wants seem so stupid.

  3. nice...i will have to check out this book...seems right up my to continuously jolt myself awake...staying there is the trick...smiles.

  4. don't you love books that turn your world upside down? i guess it's more of a love-hate relationship. you can never be the same afterwards. i love you friend.

  5. Thanks for reminding me that I need to be praying for my brothers and sisters who don't have the freedoms I so casually take for granted.

  6. Puts it all into perspective, doesn't it? Thank you for introducing me to this book...

    ...and thanks for linking up!

  7. Yeah. Just. Wow. I get this. Especially after just a small glimpse of what others experience while in Haiti.

    You said it so well, and so succinctly.
