BOOK
  God Grew Tired of Us
Written by John Bul Dau, Michael S. Sweeney/ Published by National Geographic 2007
If a person left his home country involuntarily due to a war, would he be called a refugee? Surely, he would appear to be one. However, in reality he is not a refugee, according to the 1951 Refugee Convention. He reached another country through hard moments. He witnessed his friends' and family's death with his own eyes, and had to be thankful that he was not included in the death count. While many Sudanese who left their homes during the civil war were granted refugee status, most are not recognized as such in many countries.

'God Grew Tired us Us: A Memoir' is a descriptive book about a Sudanese boy who went to the United States during the civil war that ravaged his country. The author tells a story of how he passed the neighboring countries by foot to finally reach U.S. and how boys like him were called 'Lost Boys'. The book describes the events the authour experienced, all too much for a young boy to endure for over 14 years, and the readers will not be able to change any of his/her previous misunderstanding of refugees ...
