I often feel so uneducated. How is it that I went through 19 years of schooling and not once did someone make me read Night by Elie Wiesel? It's such a small book but has taken me a week. I don't know a book that has left me so speechless. For those of you, like me, that know nothing of Elie Wiesel, he is a holocaust survivor, and Night is his honest, brutal account of what happened to him. It's hard to read, hard to imagine. Everything in me want to dismiss him -- to accuse him of overexaggeration. And yet it really happened. 6 million Jews were slaughtered. The magnitude of that atrocity is overwhelming to me. I wonder if God's hearts hurt...
