Crossing the Gilo River


We were forced out of Ethiopia and had to cross the River Gilo back to Sudan. Enemy troops were closing in. The river had currents so strong that we could not safely cross. When we heard gunshots, we realized the troops were going to kill us all and that we had no choice but to jump in the river. Only half of us survived the gunshots, crocodiles, and strong currents. Crossing the Gilo was the longest moment of my life. When I got to the other side, I just ran.
