PDF/EPUB Gilbert Tuhabonye Ñ This Voice in My Heart A Runner's Memoir of Genocide Faith Ñ

Gilbert Tuhabonye is a survivor More than ten years ago he lay buried under a pile of burning bodies The centuries–old battle between Hutu and Tutsi tribes had come to Gilbert's school Fueled by hatred the Hutus forced than a hundred Tutsi children and teachers into a small room and used machetes to beat most of them to death The unfortunate ones who survived the beating were doused with gasoline and set on fire After hiding under burning bodies for over eight hours Gilbert heard a voice inside saying You will be all right you will survive He knows it was God speaking to him Gilbert was the lone survivor of the genocide and thanks his enduring faith in God for his survivalToday having forgiven his enemies and moved forward with his life he is a world–class athlete running coach and celebrity in his new hometown of Austin Texas The road to this point has been a tough one but Gilbert uses his survival instincts to spur him on to the goal of ualifying for the 2008 Olympic Summer Games This Voice in my Heart will portray not only the horrific event itself but will be a catalyst for people to understand real forgiveness and the gift of faith in God

    Gilbert has done a beautiful job of detailing a very painful memory the murder and betrayal of classmates At first I did not care for the way he jumps from the incident that changed his life to the memories of his home in Burundi The I read the I came to realize that his childhood had as much to do with shaping his life as this traumatic event and deserved to be told He is an amazing person who shows conviction and courage in everything he does His story is compelling and will keep you turning the pages Even through the horror of the murders that occurred at his school he downplays them and what he had to endure to survive I have heard him speak on the radio several times and he never lingers over what that day cost him but talks of what he gained and how many people have helped him succeed Gilbert's story at times is heart wrenching to read but he leaves you with a message about the journey For every truly evil action there are people in this world with goodness in them as well When I finished this book it left me with a new perspective on the important people in my life and how little everything else really matters
