|Houses built out of pieces of what used to be Hotel Africa in Liberia. With no zoning laws currently being enforced, people are building wherever they can find an open clearing.|
I've also thought a lot about how long it will take for things to get better. When we were in Liberia, Emile said that it would take generations to heal from the war. I looked at the faces of the children after he said that and felt sad that they would never know a completely carefree life full of hope and possibility - like they would have had without the 16 year war. I think those of us who have never known war at home have a lot to be thankful for.
