“I cannot remember much about my village in Africa, but I remember the day I left it.” So begins this story entitled I am Bakhita: The Lucky One. This story is based on the true experiences of Saint Josephine Bakhita who was canonized by Pope John Paul II in the year 2000. My fictionalized version is told from Bakhita’s point of view.
