A Christmas Message: From Aspiring Montserrado Senator, Celia Cuffy Brown

                                                                                


Warm greetings to everyone celebrating Christmas.

During this blessed season, so many beautiful words are woven through our Christmas songs and prayers and traditions. As we celebrate this Christmas, let us remember the women of Liberia.  Women of Liberia go through severe economic hardship. Many educated and professional Liberian women earn less salary than our male colleagues, while rendering the same services or even better.  There are many other issues which affect women in Liberia. These issues can only be addressed in the house of senate by women being a part of the decision making process of Liberia. The reality is, as we aspire to join the house of senate, we may have to lose our current jobs in order to join the race. While this thought is scary, as it will put us and our families through severe economic hardship as we campaign for Senatorial Seats during the 2014 special election, let us not feel discourage. We can only change the socio discourse of Liberia through our participation of the decision making process, by holding unto our convictions without being discourage. Let us do all we can to win many seats in the house of senate. Even if it means losing our current jobs or positions to be part-taker during the 2014 senatorial race for the house, then so be it. The same God, who gave us the courage to step forward, will take us through, to the end of our journey. Remember, Philippians 4:13 “we can do all things through Christ which strengthened us”.  I wish you all merry, merry Christmas and a prosperous new 2014.

What President Trump and Kim Jong Un Ate

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continued midday Tuesday, as the leaders satisfied their appetites while holding negotiations with a contingent of advisers over a working lunch. The lunch, which followed a 45-minute one-on-one meeting between the leaders earlier in the morning and bilateral discussion with senior aides, was held at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. It was far from an intimate affair, with each leader accompanied by a bevy of senior staff, according to the White House. Joining Trump were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Asian Affairs Matthew Pottinger.
