Sierra Leone

Remember when I wrote about this book?
And this one?
Well, this is another true story, told by a young survivor of those horrific wars:
"When 12-year-old Mariatu set out for a neighboring village, she never arrived. Heavily armed rebel soldiers, many no older than children themselves, attacked and tortured Mariatu. During this brutal act of senseless violence they cut off both her hands..."

Oh my goodness, we are SO SO lucky to live in Canada.
Please read this book.
