The Grace of God

Peter Fayah and David Gibson are two young men who survive by "the grace of God" — by begging for money and food. The two helped organize 21 other youth who were also victimized by the war. On Saturdays, for an hour, the boys go around to many of the businesses in Monrovia begging for 5 Liberian dollars. David has a one-month-old baby named David Junior. Peter, who came from Voinjama, has been living near the beach with his uncle and is trying to find a way back up country.
