Today Liberians will enjoy another milestone on the path to lasting peace with the re-Inauguration of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf for her second term. In spite of some disgruntled politicians and instigation of some who thrive on chaos in their quest for personal power, most Liberians refused to allow themselves to be drawn back into unrest and instability. Even some who wanted to see changes in the Executive Mansion stood firm for democracy when the election was finalized and President Johnson-Sirleaf declared the winner.
Congratulations to all our Liberian colleagues! Lasting peace is the real "Peace Prize" and you are nearly there!
