Photographer's Note

My transportation broke down at night and I stayed in a small village. The next morning I got up and walked around the village with a few of the people living there. The village had been destroyed by rebels as they left the area.

The photo is of a school. It had no strategic value in the war. It, like clinics and houses were destroyed to create fear among the residents. There is one chalkboard left in the school, no paper or pencils, and no teachers (or anyone to pay the teachers) in this part of the country. The village as so many others in Liberia have much to do as they recover from so many years of war.
