A Dying People: The Story of a 13-year old rape victim
A war that loses its objectives like the fourteen-year civil war in Liberia makes innocent civilians targets and victimizes the vulnerable. A Dying People is a true story of a thirteen-year-old unwilling sex slave raped multiple times by her captor. Gibson Jerue tells a story of a girl, Kusay Glanyon, who was born in the wrong ethnic group that rebel forces vowed to wipe out of the face of the earth. Kusay’s father was killed in battle against the NPFL rebels; her mother and her two young brothers—five and seven—were brutally and summarily executed before her very eyes. She became an object of sexual assault by a rebel commander whose objective of saving her was not to give her another day to live but to prey on her.
