VISION FOR SIERRA LEONE
I am amazed at
the resilience of people. That after horrendous
conflict, suffering and trauma they can emerge hopeful that their beautiful
country, Sierra Leone, can be transformed from devastation, ruin and
hopelessness to their glorious counterparts.
I have every confidence that
through the National Vision they will succeed. Maybe not overnight, not tomorrow, but in
the future I believe Sierra
Leone can become a
beacon of hope to other conflict torn regions.
I believe this
will happen because it is the people of Sierra Leone who want it to happen and are willing to work to make it
happen. It is their acceptance of the
responsibility that their future is in their hands that is so wonderfully
exhilarating. They have caught the
vision and in doing so nothing will overcome it.
I am proud to
endorse the National Vision for Sierra Leone, may they succeed splendidly.
God bless you
