  1. Such a beautiful story. Brings to mind how the simplicity of everyday life in Liberia can be torn apart by tragedy, whether the awful civil war or a voracious disease. Thanks so much for sharing this intimate look at your experience there and the joy and sorrow it provided to you.

    1. Hello Mark, Yes, Rebekah’s poignant story brings Liberian life right to your heart and soul. The people were so incredibly resiliant, yet so fragile, all in one breath. It is a hard story to convey, but Rebekah did a marvelous job. All of our authors in the anthology give us all just a glimpse of the life and people of Liberia. Thank you for reading.
