comes in the season of selection
not blind, we seeing you

Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf - Unity Party Presidential Candidate, Liberia 2005
Finally, Ellen !!!
Shes patient, full of vigor, and never wavers in her views.
She has a persistent fire her opponents long for,but yet her soothing temperament unfurled as well.
Our male oriented society must rethink its stand on the gender issue, as to who can lead the nation effectively.
Yes, she has vigor and never wavers, so lets give her a chance.
She knows no boundary, tribal, western rich or poor.
She will assimilate with all people, just to create a common ground.
She has profound characteristics of a good Leader, a trait just a few in our nations political past possessed.
Not so long in a distant past, we made a terrible political selection.
We had to pay through our sweat, tears, blood and lives.
Now, a new day has dawned, fear must never determine our vote.
Yes, she has the vigor and never wavers, so lets give her a chance.
Africa must realize and do away with the notion that a womans place is solely domesticated.
In the twenty first century, the world has changed immensely, so we too must change for the better.
As Liberia takes her rightful place again in Africa, the world at large by the help of the United Nations, we the people must dismantle the Business as Usual concept.
So my Liberian people, a vote for Ellen is a stronger Liberia, where everyone is accountable for his or her actions.
Equality, Justice, and Strength---Finally, Ellen.
