      This sounds like a beautiful, distinctive book; Leah and I hope and trust that this book will be published and individuals will have the opportunity to read about, learn about and share your experiences with the Liberian people, in the town of Zorzor.

      We know that you are a brilliant writer and we believe the book will be gratifying as well as educational.

      Congratulations in advance.

      Joseph & Leah.
