CFK on tour: sharing the story April 11, 2011 by Carolina For Kibera
It’s hard to believe that CFK co-founder Rye Barcott’s book, It Happened on the Way to War: A Marine’s Path to Peace (Bloomsbury) was released only 2 short weeks ago. The book tour has already criss-crossed the US and Rye has been featured in several local and national media spots. See below for selected media features.
The book offers a personal and honest look at the successes and failures of two seemingly contradictory forms of service – military and humanitarian service. With social and political uprisings around the world being led by youth and the growth of dense urban settlements on the rise at an alarming rate, one must wonder what does the future hold? Rye offers a unique and inspiring perspective informed by friendships and lessons learned in unlikely, difficult places.
