Welcome to Uniting Distant Stars. This blog will share my experiences as a U.S. citizen living and working in Liberia, West Africa. Some of the posts will include my involvement with climate change issues, human rights, non-profit (NGO) work, and anything else that deals with day-to-day life in this developing nation as it recovers from 14 years of civil war. It is the goal of Uniting Distant Stars that through information sharing more people will come to understand and appreciate this small tropical nation in West Africa since it is often omitted from the history books of its mother nation–the United States of America. It is through information sharing that we can unite these two distant nations who have suffered a long and difficult historic relationship.
