Strength in What Remains by Tracy Kidder
Strength in What Remains

Wendy Chamberlin, January 3, 2010

This book, for me, was eye-opening and humbling. The story of Deogratias and the work he is now doing in spite of experiencing such tragedy is incredible and inspiring (in the sort of "get of yer ass and do something about this" sort of way). The brief history provided of the Burundian civil war provides a small glimpse at a horrific moment in recent history - still hard to believe this can happen today. Even harder to believe how this tragedy was completely overlooked.
