OK, I'm not going to lie, this book is not going to be for everyone.  It's been about a year since I read this novel, and i feel the need to feature it, because it changed my view on many things in life.  This novel is not just the story of the genocide in Rwanda where over 1,000,000 people died in 100 days, no this is a much deeper story, it's about how the people of Rwanda are picking up the pieces of their lives, learning how to live with their families murderers, and overall a story about forgiveness.  Reading this book was not an easy task, and trying to read through hazy teary eyes was even harder, but I am glad that I took the time to do it.  It changed my outlook on forgiveness...many times I would find it hard to forgive someone for something as simple as talking behind my back or just being rude to me...I learned that forgiveness is important, not only for that person but for yourself, so that you can move on and have inner peace.  Catherine Claire Larson interviews, I believe 6 people and follows their journey, one being Chantal, whose family is brutally murdered.  She ends up forgiving her neighbor for the heinous crimes, This novel really made me think..."Who am I, NOT to forgive?" and helped me to be more grateful for the life I live.  I hope you can take the time to read As We Forgive...I got this book from my local library, so maybe check out yours.
