Date:

           WHAT THIS ILLUSTRATION MEANS?  “DIGGING INSIDE LIBERIANS”

BY:  FRANCIS AKITI, PHD CANDIDATE/RESEARCHER, NJALA UNIVERSITY/SIERRA-LEONE

EMAIL.davidettaakiti@gmail.com

 

IN OUR CERTAIN TODAY, INDIVIDUAL ALWAYS TRIES TO FIND OUT, TRIES TO LOOK FOR THE FACTS EITHER TO GAIN KNOWLEDGE IN WHICH HELP THEM TO REASON POSITIVELY NOT NEGATIVELY AS WE ALWAYS DO.  THE REALITY OF THE TRUTH ASSIT INDIVIDUAL TO REASON AND ANALYSE INFORMATION SURROUNDING US AT WHICH TIME WE CAN BE ABLE TOGETHER OUR VIEWS, IDEAS AND POINTS SUCH NOT TO TALK FOR TALKING SAKE.

IN REFERENCE, TO A LAYMEN, THEY TRIED TO SEEK AND KNOW NOT JUST TO VOICE OUT WHY THEY THINK OR TAUGHT NEITHER TO KNOW. MORE PEOPLE TODAY, HAVE LOST THEIR INTEGRITY BY CRITICIZING THEIR COLLEAGUES, TANISHING THEIR FRIENDS REPUTATIONS EVEN GO THUS FAR BY DENIGRATING THEIR OWN COUNTRY IMPROVEMENT.

FOR SO DOING, LIBERIAN NEED TO SEEK AND KNOW THE REALITY OF TRUTH NOT TO ENGAGE INTO COORUPTION, UNDERMIND, CHARACTER ASSISSINATION AND JOB ABANADONMENT, NEITHER TO MISS THE MARK OF LOVE AS SOMEBODY SAYS, “LOVE YOURSELF AS YOU LOVE YOUR NEIGBORD”. WHAT CAN WE SAY THEN? AS THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN; HON. JOHN F. KENNEDY; STATED “DO WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY AND DO NOT EXPECT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU”. THIS QUOTATION SHOULD TEACH, DIRECT AND MAKE US TO BE SENSITIVE OF CHANGING MINDS AND CHANGING ATTAITUDES AS INTRODUCED TO LIBERIANS BY REV.DR. LAWRENCE K. BROPLEH, OF LOVING, PUTTING OUR BELOVE COUNTRY FIRST IN THE PLANET OR IN THE MIRROR OF SEEING OURSELVES EVERYDAY IN AND TO HAVE A DEVELOPMENT MIND OF REBUILDING THE NATIONS AND NOT TO SET  BACKWARD OUR  BELOVE COUNTRY,LIBERIA.

IN VIEW OF THIS, LIBERIAN MUST LEARN TO KNOW  THE TRUTH AND COPY  FROM THE WORLD AT  LARGE, TRIED TO FOLLOW  THE WAY OF RECONSTRUCTION, THE WAY OF ACHIEVEMENT AND THE WAY OF SUCCESS TOWARDS  LANDS  OF LIBERTY WHICH BROUGHT US HERE.DO NOT ALWAYS COMPLAIN BUT SEEK TO SOLVE PROBLEMS, LOOK FOR THE ROOTS CAUSE OF PROBLEM,BECAUSE THE STORM IS OVER AND TOGETHER WE CAN DEFINITELY REACH TO A POINT  OF RECONCILIATION; MEANS TO BRING  THE COUNTRY  TO AN INTERNATIONAL STANDARD, RIGHT DIRECTION OF LIFE NOT TO WASTE  OUR TIMES   OF CONTRIBUTING  TO SUSTAINABLE POVERTY.

IN ANOTHER WORDS, NO ONE, CAN SUCEED IN LIFE WITHOUT GOING THROUGH SUFFERINGS, LIFE IS JUST A ‘CHAMELEON’, A SORT OF SLOW-MOVING LIKE LIZARD WHICH CHANGES COLOR ALL THE TIME, LIFE REQUIRES PATIENT, DETREMINATION, AND TOLERANCE.THESE TERMS DIRECT YOU AND ME TO BE CONSCIENT  IN SEEKING  TO KNOW AND TO BE COURAGEOUS. WHAT COMES ON OUR WAYS DETERMINE THE POSITIVE ASPECT OF REACHING OUR FUTURE DESTINATION.

IT IS SIGNIFICANT TO LEARN FROM OTHERS, HOW! MEN CAN NOT DEPEND ON HIS OWN UNDERSTANDING NEITHER  HIS OWN KNOWLEDGE; THAT IS WHAT, WE NEED TO SEEK AND KNOW  BETTER  NOT  TO MAKE A MISTAKE,EVEN MAKING A MISTAKE,, WE NEED TO ACCEPT  IT  AND QUICKLY  GRAP THE IDEAS OF CORRECTIONS  AND TRIED  TO POSITION OURSELF OF BEING MAJOR AND PATRIOTISM  OF HAVING FEELING OF LOVING  OUR COUNTRY DESPITES OF EVERY ACT OF  VANDALISM ,CORRUPTION, CRITICISM, DESTUCTION AND DAMAGE OF PUBLIC  PROPERTY.THE TIME HAS COME  FOR LIBERIANS TO SEEK AND KNOW  THE IMPORTANCE  OF RECONCILIATION  AND HEALING, THE TIME IS FAST SPENT, WE NEED WILLIGNESS TO ENGAGE  IN DIALOGUE  AND COMMITMENT  TO PROMOTING  HEALING  AND TRANSFORMATION.

IN THIS PLATFORM, LIBERIANS NEED TO SEEK AND TO KNOW THAT A NEW DAY HAS DAWNED WHERE EVERY INDIVIDUAL OR CITIZEN SHOULD SEE HIMSELF AS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR AND COLLABORATOR   TO THE RECONSTRUCTION  OF OUR BELOVE COUNTRY, SEEKING TO KNOW  THAT WE NEED TO STRESS OUR HANDS BEYOUNG  TO REVAMP  THE IMAGE OF OUR NATIONS.
