Liberia’s Chief Executive, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, is calling on the United States to remember the Liberian people who are willingly championing democratic tenets throughout the Country.

President Sirleaf said the Liberian people are willing to take risk for democracy and peace, and to be given chance to see their children live proud, productive and dignified lives.

She reminded the American people: “Liberia’s love of liberty was inherited from America’s values of democratic governance and respect for all, regardless of race, creed or religion, referring to them as the beacon of light from across the Atlantic.”

According to a September 28, 2017 dispatch, the Liberian Leader made the statement recently when she delivered her keynote address at the United States Capitol’s Congressional Visitor Center Auditorium in Washington, D. C.

President Sirleaf recalled that in her recent speech delivered at the United Nations General Assembly, she acknowledged that Liberia’s transformation was powered by a world community.

She emphasized that the World Community made a shared commitment to restore peace to the country and to the West African Sub-Region beset by civil conflict and cross border destabilization.

Nevertheless, she noted that through the leadership of the United States Congress, bi-partisan and bi-cameral, and with the support of successive administrations, the U.S. guided the international effort that restored and maintained Liberia’s peace and reconstruction.
