Book Reccomendation: "Left to Tell" by Immaculee Ilibagiza

Book Reccomendation
"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."
