I choose the song Take a minute by K’naan. I choose this song because it reminds me of the book A Long Way Gone and it reminds me of when Ishmael’s lost his mother and saw people being killed.

“Mother knows, my mother she suffered blows

I don't know how we survived such violent episodes”

This lyric I think is very strong because he made it through being shot at, stuff being set on fire around him, running for hours and hours. Starving, living in jungles, and he was very attached to his mom and was very worried about her, maybe his mom didn’t make it through but he did.
