Movie: God Grew Tired of Us
This movie has been sitting on our shelf for months from Netflix. I was expecting something completely different. What I got was a great documentary, a great inspiration, and a reminder to stop whining.
The film briefly covers the history of the mid-80s civil war in Sudan, and the subsequent exodus of young Sudanese men and boys into a refuge camp in Kenya. It focuses on the first four years of the lucky few "lost boys" who are offered refuge in the U.S.
Go watch it.
