    What a moving coverage of the Liberia story and that criminal Charles Taylor. I am sitting here in tears. Susan and Brenda you ladies have done it again.

    This verdict is just a beginning. The people in Sierra Leone have been struggling to understand and find a way to move on, as a community. There is a very moving independent film, Dakar to Port Loko, by Nathaniel Cogley, a PhD student at Yale university, in part of which the producer interviewed both amputees and those who perpetrated the crimes in Sierra Leone. It is not well known, but definitely worth watching. The filmmaker did these interviews on his own time and money several years ago. The personal stories and comments the interviewer was able to get, from both sides, is riveting and heart wrenching. While the interviews were collected several years ago, their meaning and relevance is particularly important now in light of this weeks' verdict and attention to the effects of this man's violent intimidation policies!
