My native land - Liberia! Happy Independence!
Liberia a tiny country of about 43,000 square miles with a population of about 5 million sits on the west coast of Africa located at the dip of the map and is bordered by its neighbors Sierra Leone, on the west,
Guinea, on the north, Cote D'Ivore on the east
and the Atlantic Ocean on the south.
The Liberian flag with its eleven stripes is a striking resemblance of the United States of America Flag distinguished only by the Lone Star.
With English as it's official language, Liberia has over thirty tribal dialects
A settlement of the American Colonization Society
of freed and free-borned blacks, spoken of by the "Coat of Arms"
for their love for liberty returned home to their native land.
With it's first president elect Joseph Jenkins Roberts of the state of Virginia, Liberia proclaimed its independence on July 26, 1847.
It's capital city Monrovia is named after America's 5th president
President James Monroe.
A freed democratic country enjoyed for many years the administration of president William V.S. Tubman, followed by William R. Tolbert, Jr, from which arose a coup with rulership of Sargeant Samuel K. Doe, followed by Charles Taylor, Ellen Sirleaf and now George Weah
Liberia has been through its share of calamities and devastations,
despite, Liberia is resilient.
We must pray and hope for Liberia's restoration.
We believe, trust and hope in God that he can take ashes and make it beautiful and that one day Liberia will rise to a state of affluence.
Liberians, brothers and sisters of African descent, Diaspora
wherever you are, wherever you may be, let us unite, join forces
and make a difference to help Liberia, but not only Liberia, the continent of Africa and its Diaspora.
One people, one family, one love
Let us pray, work together and keep hope alive
Happy Independence Day Liberians, Happy 26th
Proud be a born and raised Liberian
