God Grew Tired of Us

I saw this film last night as part of a fund raiser for the IRC Boise. It was wonderful and sad and inspirational.

The film follows a handful of the lost boys of Sudan, male children displaced by the war and violence in Sudan over the last decade and a half or so.

They most of them were routed from their homes in the middle of the night by militia who killed their friends and family. Many escaped and headed to Ethiopia, and then Kenya, where they stayed in refugee camps for ten years or more.

Some of them made it to the US with the help of the IRC and other agencies, and this film follows their progress here.

See it if you can. It should be an inspiration to us all.
