A Book to Read and Love: Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton

A short summary of the book Cry, The Beloved Country:

Kumalo's tragedy in the illiberality of South Africa

My favorite quote from the book:

"I do this not because I am courageous and honest, but because it is the only way to end the conflict of my deepest soul"


Questions I pondered while reading Cry, The Beloved Country:

Is the disintegration of tribalism the cause of many of our problems?

How detrimental is fear to our society?

My thoughts about Cry, The Beloved Country:

Industrialism wasn't always the right answer.

Don't fear what is different.

Families should stand by one another.
