MONROVIA, LIBERIA – Liberian Association of Writers (LAW) and the publisher of ‘Violation of Innocence’ are challenging Liberian professional, ordinary and other stakeholders to narrate the unheard but positive stories about themselves and country through writings.
In separate statements, the President of LAW, Samuel Dweh has challenged Liberians to do away with unnecessary criticism that derails the nation’s common interest, and called on politicians and other citizens to develop the skill to write on issues affecting the country.
Mr. Dweh spoke Saturday, February 27, 2021 at the Monrovia Christian fellowship Center on 9th Street, Monrovia, to mark the official launch of the book, ‘Violation of Innocence’. The book written and published by a Liberian Epidemiologist, Thomas Woahloe based in America.
In separate remarks, Montserrado County Senator, Abraham D. Dillon wants Liberian stakeholders remain open to criticisms for the good of society, and also observed that ‘violation of the innocence’ is an age-old situation that exploits many Liberians, including women and girls.
Senator Dillon said “my admiration for this book, is based on the hard work put into the publication, mostly the title of this book has created the desire for me to write my own book”.
Launching the book, the Author, Mr. Thomas Woahloe, said: “The publication is meant to break the total systematic failure of society and abuse of human rights”.
The accomplished publisher then called for partnership with Government to stabilize human dignity and equality for all in society.
As part of Mr. Woahloe’s encouragement for Liberian to become writer, he offered to pay-off 50% of the cause of the Senator’s planned publication. The publication, ‘Violation of Innocence’, comes with the quote; “The time is always right to do what is right”, by Martin Luther King Jr.
The 10 chapters and 103 pages publications also provides readers with resounding arguments that unveil the existence of violations of innocence and describes various forms of social deviation, capturing the Liberian experience as compared to the developed world and how individuals can rise above life’s limitations to attain life’s fulfillment.
The book’s title also considers the social injustices and menace against national development, which creates division and kills the dreams of millions of low income-impoverished population and communities.
The occasion was graced by several private stakeholders, politicians, the clergy, many well-wishers and family and friends of the Mr. Woahloe
