The poverty in Liberia - The poorest country in the world
To those of you who do not know, Liberia is the second most poorest country in the world. Liberia is infact very very poor and the worst place to live as a child. Many people have died and many people are dying and many more are about to die in Liberia because the poverty in Liberia is getting worse by the day. Liberia used to be one of the most prosporous countries on the continent but now the poorest on the continent of Africa. After many years of war and conflicts (over 15 years of war), Liberia is now the worst country to live in as a child. children are dying in their numbers. Rebels are raping innocent girls everyday. Children are been forced to kill their own parents and children are been trained just to kill their fellow human beings. When you go to Liberia, you will understand what I am talking about. You will see children without their hands and legs. You will see children with "short sleeves" and "long sleeves". What happened to these children? that is the result of the 15 years of war. Most people who refused to coorperate were killed and the few lucky ones lost their limbs. You will see children without their legs and children whithout their hands not because they were born this way but due to the stupidity and foolishness of the selected few, these children can neither write nor do anything with their limbs. What is the future of these children? only God knows. Do you think that Liberia can ever recover from this mess? Do you think that Liberia can ever become the Liberia it was many many years ago? Do you think that Liberia can become the prosporous country it was some years ago? What do you think?
