Wickedness, Other Vices Dent Ties Among Liberians

MONROVIA, April 23 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has observed that Liberians have drifted away from the values and spirit implanted by their forefathers, opting to practice hatred, lies, undermining, injustice, discrimination and wickedness towards their compatriots.

“We hate each other, lie on each other, kill each other, act wicked to each other; but God in his bountiful love and mercy continues to give us the chance over and over to right the wrongs and make our country better,” President Sirleaf said.

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf made the assertion at the 35th Anniversary Memorial Service for former officials of the William Richard Tolbert Government killed on April 22, 1980.

The Memorial Service was held at the First Presbyterian Church on Broad and Johnson Streets in Monrovia.

She stressed the need for Liberians to individually and collectively work for reconciliation which she indicated “must come from the heart and stay with each of us,” adding that each Liberian must look at himself/herself in the mirror and say ‘I have done my part to promote reconciliation.’

“We have all individually and collectively sinned against God and must work to right the wrongs. I pray that God gives each of us the strength and courage to be a part of the righting the wrongs committed throughout our existence as a nation,” she stressed.

The Liberian leader emphasized that this was why government joined the mourners to pray to God and recommitted itself to go back to the thoughts of the forefathers to right the wrongs and make Liberia better.

She thanked God for the 10 years of uninterrupted peace to which all Liberians have contributed.
