Summary

Fuelled by hatred, the Hutus tribes forced more than a hundred Tutsi children and teachers into a small room and used machetes to slash most of them to death. After hiding under a heap of his smouldering classmates for more than eight hours, Gilbert heard an inner voice saying, "You will be alright; you will survive." This is his story.

The Running Man Summary

The Running Man by Gilbert Tuhabonye

Gilbert Tuhabonye is a survivor. More than ten years ago the centuries-old battle between the Hutu and Tutsi tribes of Africa came to his school. Fuelled by hatred, the Hutus forced more than a hundred Tutsi children and teachers into a small room and used machetes to slash most of them to death. The unfortunate ones who survived were doused in petrol and set on fire. After hiding under a heap of his smouldering classmates for more than eight hours, Gilbert heard an inner voice saying, "You will be alright; you will survive." Gilbert was the lone survivor of the school attack and thanks his enduring faith in God for his survival. Today, Gilbert is a world class athlete, running coach, and celebrity in his home town of Austin, Texas. The road to this point has been a tough one, but he uses his survival instincts to spur him on to the goal of qualifying for the 2008 Olympic summer games. In his own words Gilbert recounts not only the horrific event back in 1993, but the transformative power of forgiveness and faith: a truly compelling and emotive tale.
