"Left to Tell" by Immaculee Ilibagiza
Authors, share your story, say what you have to say because you never know who it may impact. The post below is a piece I originally wrote for Facebook. It is a reflection about the book "Left to Tell," by Immaculee Ilibagiza.
Your book,"Left to Tell," had an incredible impact on me. So much so that I consider it to be a significant life event. I have drawn a great amount from your life story. When you relate your ability to still believe in humanity and love it reminds me of a book by Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. called, "Strength To Love," and to me, your book is the epitome of having the strength to love. One of the things I take from your book is that the human heart could be described as a world unto itself and your writing takes the reader through all of the intricacies within that world. I came across this book when I was about 25 years old,a time when deciding what love is supposed to look like is critical. Your book was a central part of guiding the process of making a conscious decision about what I want in that regard. I thank you for writing, "Left To Tell."
