I feel bad for the people of Haiti, but Liberia has it pretty bad. If anything, the tinge of American ancestry makes it hit home a little harder. I think it is safe to say the even the most well-educated and concerned Americans are unaware of the conditions in Liberia; nor do I feel they’re aware of the country’s history. And if you’ve ever taken a cruise, chances are the ship was registered there.
