Have you ever been in a situation in life where youthought it was the end of the world? Maybe you questioned yourself why God
chose you? And Still Peace Did Not Come: A memoir of Reconciliationwritten by Agnes Fallah Kamara-Umunna was written to tell the stories of
victims, perpetrators, and her own story of the 14 years of civil war in
Liberia. There was two wars that occurred, World War One from 1989-1996 and the
other World War Two from 1999-2003. The Liberia’s civil war took the lives of
250,000 people out of a population of 2.5 million. Brothers killed brothers, neighborsagainst neighbors, child soldiers against parents, son’s raped moms and bullets
everywhere. The war was led by a man named Charles Taylor who created an army
of child soldiers. These child soldiers would be kidnapped at the earliest age
of two years old. They were drugged and trained to kill innocent people. Child soldiers
would have to please their commanders in order to keep their own lives, it did not matter what the orders were. Even through all this tragedy, Ages discovers a
way to find peace and reconciliation. She did this by hosting a radio station "straight from the heart" where people would express their feelings and experiences of the war.
Agnes goal is strongly based on forgiving thechild soldiers, help kids rebuild their lives, and find peace and
reconciliation.
      
    I gave this book 5 stars because it is very interesting and sad. It makes you appreciate life and be thankful for not living in an area so violent. Agnes makes you
learn to always forgive even in hard times. 

I strongly recommend reading this book
