Ref: A letter to my Dearest Dad, Dr. George Manneh Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia
I pen these few words to you with a very high emotion expressed. In so much gratitude, I am out of words to exactly jot how I felt during my wedding, and the way I continue to feel with the level of fatherly love you show me always.
From the very first day, I got into your proximity and to date, you have never ceased to surprise me with your true sense of human. You are a humble, peaceful, thoughtful, and down-to-earth character, which everyone would love to emulate. Yes, you stood by me in everything, everywhere, and anytime!
I pledge my heart to equally commit myself to you by the special grace of Allah; I have made up my mind to always stand up for you and be there for you more equally. For you, my lips cannot cease in appreciating you for nearly everything. Honestly, Allah knows my heart for you more than anyone. Dad, I remain your son and will equally do everything a son does to make his parents (dad & mom) happy.
During my wedding on 12/23/2021, the fatherly love was just too much for me, I am still overwhelmed and joyful.
Most importantly, dad, I feel very proud as a son because, to date, my mother keeps shedding tears since the wedding. My mother is proud that her son from the slum brought up, attracted the Head of State at our wedding; she strongly believes that it is a special grace from Allah only. She is proud as a mother and feels grateful that I am a blessing to the family and many others around us. This dad expresses her gratitude but has shown it in tears. I must state that my mother is proud of the man I have become, never deviating from the training instilled in me. She also knows that you are a great impact on my life and our entire family. Thank you yah, papa.
Lastly, let me end to say, Mr. President, I will honestly remain grateful for everything you have shown me and continue to do.
May Allah grant you goodness in return! Ameen.
Your beloved son,
