Liberia's tough upward road--The truth and reconciliation commission opens

Yesterday Liberia's Truth and Reconciliation Commission held it's first public hearings. It marks an astoundingly hopeful turnaround for a nation that spent 10 years in the grip of one of the more horrifying civil wars of the 20th century. They've still a ton of work ahead of them, but I hope it will not be unorthodox for me to say tres HOORAY for Liberia. They've had a truly breathtaking turnaround in the last couple of years. Almost enough to make one hope for Kenya, and Darfur, and Iraq.
