God Sleeps in Rwanda
God Sleeps in Rwanda: A Journey of Transformation (9781416575733): Joseph Sebarenzi, Laura Mullane: Books

Following up my recent post about Democratic Republic of Congo and the Great Lakes Region of Africa. I just started reading this book and so far it is a great read. It is written from a personal perspective by a man (Sebarenzi) who lost several members of his family in the Rwandan genocide. He later became the Speaker of the Rwandan Parliament -- but even from that position of political power he was forced to flee for his life.

And yet through all of that, he seems to be able to maintain a positive attitude as he works to promote peace for the region. Amazon.com will let you take a quick look at some of the book -- but it is certainly worth the price to pick up a copy or a Kindle.
