Karine K Wesseh: The Time is Now

Karine K Wesseh has a message for us all, check it out.  

"It's about time that we the youths of Liberia open out eyes and stop living that ''I DONT CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS ABOUT ME'' lifestyle, because you should care in this day and age. For so many years we have been the last in many things. We are last in graduations, We are last in marriages, we are the last in the Entertainment industry, we are the last in economics growth and worse of all, we are the very last in supporting one another successes. Regardless of all this, it is safe to say that we are not to be blame for our problems. 
LIBERIAN CIVIL WAR is the one to blame. Unlike other African countries, our country was in civil war since 1989 until 2005 when Liberia finally set up a government and had a presidential election. Due to Liberian war, most Liberian parents did not go to school, and they did not experience civilization, so they have no idea on how to be successful. With this said, most of our youths does not know the importance of education or ways of becoming successful because they had nobody to teach them. How can a parent teach a kid to ride a bike when the parent does not know how to ride a bike? Parents have more influence on a young child's life as they raise the child. Unlike Liberian parents, parents from other African countries are educated, career-driven and successful in many aspects of life because they had the opportunity, so they use their experience to motivate their children. Liberian war is over now and there will be no one to blame if we continue not to care. we have partied and danced enough so forget about the baby shower and focus on celebration your graduation day. It's never too late to fall in love so forget the man/woman who is adding no value to your success or education and go better yourself." Karine K Wesseh

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
