In a chilling, all-too-familiar story, Masua Abaneru, 22, was abducted by the guerilla group and apocalyptic-Christianity cult, the Lord’s Resistance Army, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Abaneru was taken into the bush where LRA commanders forced his own children to hit him with sticks until (they thought) he was dead. Several days after the beating, Abaneru woke up and literally crawled until he found help.  http://www.life.com/gallery/52491/image/ugc1145951/2010-pictures-of-the-year
