Few years ago, about a decade and a half of severe destruction of our country, in which all the fabrics of the economy collapsed, Liberia became an Oasis of Despair, Desolation, Anguish, an a place of lost future for all of its citizens, especially when efforts made by Regional Bodies; ECOWAS, MRU, and OAU yield little or no fruitful results in the restoration of Political Stability and the subsequently coming of our Hegemony (Liberia) as a FAILED STATES among the comity of Nations by most of Liberia's bilateral and multi-literal Partners.
Having realized the horrors, consequences and agonies of war, the refining and defining moments, as envisaged by the Consortium of Youth -led Pro-Democracy groups is evident by the thoughts, actions of all Liberians irrespective of their political, cultural, religious and social divergence.
The refining and defining moments can be traced back to way in which Liberians have conducted themselves from their different political institutions and the role the youth now play to hold-on, objectively, robustly, impartially and efficiently follow the track records of outstanding personalities, who have and continued to make optimum utilization of their individual persons to impact the lives and activities of thousand of youthful Liberian and the Liberian society.
