We watched the movie God Grew Tired Of Us. I thought that it was a good movie because it showed us how people lived in Sudan and how they lived. When the African came to the U.S. They had to become a U.S. citizen. So they had to fill out a whole bunch of paper work and they had to go out and get an apartment and at least one or more jobs just to be able to eat, never mind living in their own apartments. They need to make a good living for themselves. One of them wanted to go to college and start his life until one day when he got a letter in the mail, his family was alive and he had to pay to get them back. They had to try to get enough money working two jobs to pay to get his mother and sister and he had to pay a certain amount of money for them each. He found out that more of his family was alive but he could only have two family members come to the U.S.
The book had some similarities to the book, like when Ishmael lost his family and he had no hope left. They both left their homelands to be where there was no civil war going on. They both had to leave their friends and family because they were all separated from them.
