We Wish to Inform you that Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda by Phillip Gourevitch

Book: We Wish to Inform you that Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda by Phillip Gourevitch

Rating: Amazing and Heart breaking

Lesson Learned: Power of written word

I read this in college and was never the same. This is about the genocide in Rwanda from the 90s and is a hard book to read or to put down. You are left shocked, horrified and ready to act. This is not a book you should read if you are happy with your life just the way it is. I cannot imagine someone reading this and not being mobilized to act on a global scale. I am still trying to process this book four years later and figuring out how I am going to contribute to sustainable peace through economic development around the world.
