Mitch: I was interviewed today by Obediah Johnson, a 25 year old reporter for the leading newspaper in Liberia. Obediah has been chasing fire trucks and police cars for 2 years trying to get scoops. When he submits a good story he gets paid. His parents are both dead and he put himself through school this way. He’s still studying at the University and hopes to graduate in a year. When there’s a will, there is most certainly a way. Obediah lives in a slum on the outskirts of Monrovia, in a tiny room with no power, no water and no sanitary facilities. I came away from the interview far more impressed with him than I’m sure he was with me.
