I was able to say, "I forgive you." Part 2 of 3

View descriptionShare

Marcus Doe, originally from Liberia, became a refugee in Ghana at age 12; when he started attending school he learned that his father had been murdered. A year later, "When I came to the States, I had a measure of trauma", Marcus explains about the war and losing his father.  "I had a blockage; when we took quizzes, and it was quiet, I had much more important things in my life than solving equations."  He would sweat at flashbacks.  "A few years later a Pastor looked at me and said, 'Whatever you have planned for your life, God is going to change it.'"  Marcus explains how he would write one paragraph a day for 3 years, which eventually became his book "Catching Ricebirds". Marcus wanted to get past this anger towards this man who had killed his father. "In the spring of 2010, I fly back to Liberia, and I was able to say the words, 'I forgive you'".
