The Program Coordinator of a non-for-profit foundation based in Monrovia has described actions of the Quardu Gbondi citizens in Lofa County as ‘totally unacceptable and unbecoming acts of violence’ against the Liberian leader.A week ago the Liberian leader visited Lofa County officially intended to assess the conditions of the Ebola virus Disease impacts and accomplishments at the epic-center in Foya District and other areas.Program Coordinator Byrd Leroy Morris Sr. head of Change Incorporated (CI) further pointed out that the attitude of the Quardu Gbondi citizens and youths does not represent the aspirations of Liberian youth groups.“If we are young people are to take over the mantle of leadership of the nation in the near we must cultivate virtues that would commensurate with the herculean tasks ahead,” Mr. Morris stressed.He further indicated that the currently new wave of doctrine of disrespect to Constitutional authorities is becoming a vicious circle and called on all young Liberians to desist from unwholesome and ungodly attitude if Liberia is to forge ahead. Mr. Morris also noted that with young people assuming leadership let us as Liberians be more civil in their utterances to leaders especially those that are constitutionally elected in the country.The CI boss warned that Liberians cannot and should not vote people in power just to insult them and Liberians should channel their displeasures and grievances through other means rather than verbal abuses.“This is becoming a new culture and folks see this as a means of entering government and that is if one becomes fearless and provocative in their utterances, it is evident that the government may pacify him/her with a job,” Coordinator Morris asserted.Mr. Morris also pointed out some Liberians may want to argue that Boakai Jalieba allegedly insulted the President and was rewarded with an Assistant Ministerial Post. He however, urged Liberians to leave that up to him and posterity will judge and rest of his people.Mr. Morris added that this trend should serve as a wake-up call to our leaders and those constitutionally elected to respect the young people and prioritize the well being of young people through the provision of employment and scholarship opportunities if we are to forge ahead as a nation and people.The CI head that Liberians should be more civil in addressing issues with their leaders and added that he is using this medium to apologize to the Liberian President for the rude behavior exemplified by youths in Lofa County.The CI head noted that the manner in which their grievances were meted out against the Liberian leader were indeed counterproductive.He also emphasized that the President will always be the President and this nation is a nation governed by law and people should respect those tents if this nation is to forge ahead and depend on the youth as future leaders of the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Guyana Golden Lives Organisation, a unique non-governmental organisation (NGO) which caters for children coping with bereavement, was formally launched on Thursday.The Department of Public Information (DPI) reported that the founder and Queen’s Young Leaders’ Awardee, Marva Langevine, said she was inspired to establish the NGO after reading a biblical scripture which called for the care of the less fortunate.She was also further persuaded after witnessing the effect her friend’s death due to cancer had on her two young children.The 25-year-old said, “The training, the networking opportunities, the knowledge to manage a non-profit and how to take it to the next level… Persons were telling meBritish High Commissioner Greg Quinn and founder of Guyana Golden Lives, Marva Langevinethat this going to get big; this going to blow up… So, the Queen’s Young Leaders’ award gave me that push I needed and here we are today.”Langevine established the NGO in 2014 and has since assisted 30 children so far, with guidance from the Queen’s Young Leaders’ programme.Also, addressing the gathering at the launch was the Advisor to the Public Health Minister, John Adams, who recalled during his 28 years of teaching and social protection experience, he witnessed how children attempted to cope with the loss of a parent or both.Adams noted, “If an adult loses a parent it is difficult, much less a child, and for them to grow they need our support. For them to cope they need our support. For them to develop into that adult who will make a positive contribution to the development of their country, and their community, they need our support. I’m happy that Marva has chosen this path.”Support for the initiative was promised by British High Commissioner, Greg Quinn, who noted “I hope you will all be able to do likewise. It is the very least we can do for this amazing young woman, the embodiment of everything the Queen’s Young Leaders’ Programme is about.”Stakeholders also heard an emotional testimony from orphan Orlanzo Raghunandan who lost both parents. Raghunandan, who benefited from the Golden Lives organisation, spoke of his determination to succeed at his Civil Engineering studies despite having to learn to cope with the loss of both parents at an early age.An explanation of the five stages of grief – denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance – was given by Dr Coleena Brown. She explained, “we can help them [the bereaved] get to the place of acceptance. Because once you are there, you’re able to manage your life as a child, as a teenager and as an adult in a much healthier way.”At the conclusion of the launch, a puppy was presented to a Best Village orphan Angel Shivsanker and a certificate guaranteeing lifetime care, courtesy of Pawsome Pets’ Luana Pierre.
