Ishmael Beah - Excerpt from "A Long Way Gone" Complete video at: fora.tv Author and Sierra Leone war refugee Ishmael Beah reads an excerpt from his book, "A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier." ----- Ishmael Beah introduces "A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier." You will never forget Ishmael Beah and his heart-breaking, gripping story of a child's journey through hell. There may be as many as 300000 child soldiers, hopped up on drugs and wielding AK-47s, in more than fifty conflicts around the world. Beah used to be one of them. He is the first to tell his story in his own words. What is war like through the eyes of a child soldier? How does he become a killer? How does he stop? Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have imagined their lives. Until now, there hasn't been a first-person account from someone who came through this hell and survived to tell the tale.

Sent to a rehabilitation center, he struggled to regain his humanity and to convince the world of civilians who viewed him with fear and suspicion. It is, at last, a story of redemption. Beah, now 25, came to the US when he was seven***, and graduated from Oberlin ...
