Painful Journey

a Story of Escape and Survival


Hearing a top NPFL rebel commander’s BBC Radio interview threatening to kill him and other members of his tribe supposedly using child soldiers high on drugs, who were killing without compunction, the writer fled his native Liberia to begin life anew as a refugee in neighboring Sierra Leone in 1990. Little did he know that he was going to be on the run again when nine months later, rebels crossed the border from Liberia and attacked his country of asylum via the very village in which he and his family had taken refuge. After almost being shot that morning, he fled inland and trekked for three days and three nights through winding and treacherous forest roads, surviving solely on wildlife. Four years later he was on the run again with his family when the war entered their refugee camp. This book is powerful narrative of the writer’s unyielding struggle and unwavering determination to survive in the face of danger, deaths, and a pervasive stream of human suffering caused by two interconnected, yet despicable civil wars that destroyed both his native land and the country that gave him refuge.
