WITNESS: A Civil War Through The Eyes Of A Child
WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS (November 20th, 2018) Who could imagine a war survivor landed on a local Worcester school campus with experience far more than you could ever imagine. AS A CHILD, HE LIVED THROUGH THE CIVIL WAR IN LIBERIA. An amazing story is told about an incredible young man who landed in Providence, Rhode Island ,was a Massachusetts Scholar,graduate of Bancroft School and currently resides in California. His story brings tears to anyone’s eyes. This man’s smile and hope is contagious, and how he helps his community is beautiful.
When Q was 8, his mom was held at gunpoint by a 14-year-old orphan girl who was forced to become a child soldier. While Q and his siblings watched, his mom prayed that if somehow she lived, she would become a mom to the girl. Q and his mom escaped death. And it was truly a miracle. After they were safe and in America, his mom kept her promise and returned to adopt the girl. She ultimately adopted 44 children. Q has now devoted his life to sharing this story, inspiring hope in his own family and the local community. He also travels back to Liberia to help change the lives of kids who need clothing and supplies so they can attend school (through Save More Kids). All while trying to support his wife and two girls. I’ve never met anyone like this before!

“It’s like digging deep into an old WOUND still covered with bandage. The process was intense, however, the aftermath of the reflection has created healing so psychologically profound that I feel emboldened with a strong sense of obligation to reach other victims of war, peal back their bandages and give them a platform for therapy through Witness for the true healing process to start for them.” said, Mr. Karmue.
