By: Alan Headbloom – Feel Like You Belong
At seven years of age, when the bullets came flying and people said, “Run!” Augustin Nsabimana ran. As he and family members fled the advancing troops of the RPF, this Rwandan youth saw what no child should see: decapitated and decomposing bodies of the sick, the slow, and the unlucky. Underneath it all was the terror that bespoke his family’s flight: Run! Run, or you could be next. In this story of loss and redemption, grown-up “Auggie” tells of the national chaos that was 1994 Rwanda and the parting words of his brother, which became the title for his book, “See You In Heaven.”
Alan Headbloom hosts Feel Like You Belong, a show filmed at WKTV focused on sharing the life stories of immigrants, expatriates, and refugees to the United States.
