"I recalled seeing parents, relatives, and friends shedding tears on their faces as they say good-byes to their boys. I cannot envision the torment those unfortunate parents went through as they watched their boys being taken away from them for unknown future. In Survivor: the Heart of a Champion and the Will of a Winner, author Chol Mayom recounts his life in Sudan during the civil war, his journey to Ethiopia and Kenya, and how he survived the daunting challenges and hardships he faced along the way. The year was 1983 when he and his family bid farewell to their lives in the city of Khartoum for a new and uncertain future in the town of Bor in South Sudan. Back then, the country was about to enter into a harsh civil war, and Bor was among the places devastated by civil war. In South Sudan, Chol was introduced to a different and harsher kind of life and environment. He not only witnessed violence and suffered from poverty, but also became one of the "Lost Boys" the SPLM/A lured to Ethiopia under the guise of providing them with better education. But the truth was that they were being recruited for military training and eventually military service. Chol recounts his quest for a better future, not only as a soldier, but also as a true man with a family to love and to take care of.
