I, Who Did Not Die

I, Who Did Not Die

Oct 10, 2017-- In this interview, Richard Whittaker sits down with Meredith May, author of "I, Who Did Not Die," a true story of hope and humanity, beginning with an event on a battlefield during the Iran-Iraq war. There, an Iranian boy soldier named Zahed takes mercy on an Iraqi soldier, Najah, after seeing a picture of his loved ones that dropped out of his Quran. Realizing their commonalities, he decides to save his life. Says May, "As humans, if we could just remember [to] stop chasing money and power and start chasing kindness -- that's what this book says in a very dramatic, compelling story." Astonishingly, the story gets better, as they meet by chance twenty years later in Vancouver, Canada. Here, May shares details and insight from her meetings with the men and their tales of war, prison, immigration, love, and survival. (4559 reads)
