Excerpt taken from the chapter titled “John” on page 85. ◦ “So began what turned into a 500-mile journey. We walked from village to village. The towns had names such as Raat, Buma, Kapoeta, and Nairus. We kept moving farther south to get away from the fighting. We eventually realized that if we ran out of safe land in Sudan we would have to go into the neighboring country of Kenya. At the end of the line was Kapoeta then Lokichokio, just over the border. If we made it that far, the pursuing armies would not follow us.”
