“More people have died in Sudan's current civil war, the longest civil war in history, than in Kosovo, Bosnia, Rwanda, and Chechnya combined. But after President Clinton bombed Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, in 1998, Sudan faded from the forefront of international news”.

The War in Sudan

The crisis in Darfur could be recognized as a modern holocaust. Approximately 450,000 people have already died from violence or disease, over 4 million people have been displaced from their homes, and more than 2,000 villages have been destroyed stroyed by Sudanese government soldiers and government-backed militias, known as the "Janjaweed." Various sources say that the Sudanese government has been killing witnesses to suppress horrific information. The conflict, started in early 2003, has had no progress whatsoever and seems to be unheard of in the world. I hope that his website's makes people more aware of the suffrage in Sudan and the people that go through it.

Books read on the War in Sudan: "God Grew Tired of Us" - A Memoir by John Bul Dau and Michael Sweeney

The book “God Grew Tired of Us” is known as a first-person account of a miracle. This is the story of John Bul Dau also known as a “lost boy” of Sudan. He was 12 years old when the Sudanese civil war ravaged his tribe (The Dinka), and he was forced to flee with a strange man thinking that it was his father. The stranger, Abraham, became a “father” to John and they set on their miraculous journey of suffrage, sorrow, and tragedy. Reaching Ethiopia barely surviving starvation, they set foot to Kenya. A march of over 500 boys traveling thousands of miles by foot with nothing but each other fearing for their life’s. John saw many of his friends being killed due to either violence or starvation. These boys became each other’s family and shared the little food they got from the UN and USSR. They ate together, studied together, prayed together, and slept together. John, unlike many unlucky “boys, received a chance to start a new life in Syracuse, New York. Although John’s story is tragic, there are many other “lost boys” and “lost girls” who have stories too, some may be worse and some may not be, but John’s story should be a wakeup call to the whole entire world of the terror in Sudan and the children who suffer from it.
