Lights!

On Tubman Boulevard, Congo Town, Independence Day 2006.

When the lights were tested on Monday, July 24th, the rejoicing in the streets was very much like it was the day we heard Ellen Johnson Sirleaf had won the Presidency. Even those of us who use generators here could not help but cheer. It's wonderful to see that we, as a nation, are moving forward.

This is a really great blog and a medium that affords Liberians the opportunity to see and hear from our country.

Keep up the great work!

I am currently in the process of adopting a baby from Liberia. I thank you for posting this. I am thrilled to see all that Madam President is doing....
