our IB English teacher
arranged for Emmaunel Jal to visit our school.
He did some workshops with the middle
and secondary students.
Then he held a concert
along with some Zambian artists
and students from the school.
Not knowing a whole lot about him,
I googled him and found the following TedTalk.
every time I hear the song Emma
I wanted to take Ethan to see his concert.
Ethan sat up front with his mates.
He even got on stage and danced with him.
Meanwhile, I sat with my mate,
and cried some more.
It was then she asked me if I had read the book about Emma.
There's a book about Emma?
I need to read this!
The next morning,
before school began,
I bugged her about the book
and quickly purchased it on my Kindle.
This is a book about Emma
and the war in Sudan.
It's a tough read.
It's a long read.
But it's worth reading.
