After fourteen years of civil war, Liberia is now rebuilding. And Liberian refugees from all over the world are coming back home to help in the rebuilding process.At the moment many people don't have electricity and nearly three quarters of the population doesn't have access to clean drinking water. Here is a video of one Liberian entrepreneur who is trying to provide safe water and make a living at the same time.
Once the world's fifth-largest iron ore exporter and home to the world's largest rubber plantation, Liberia's economy collapsed during more than a decade of on-off conflict, now we all have to do our part to help our country.

The Lone Star forever
The national song
When freedom raised her glowing form on Montserrado's verdant height, She set within the doom of night, 'midst low ring stars and thunderstorms the star of liberty - and seizing from the waking morn, its burnished shield of golden flame she lifted in her proud name and raise a people long forlorn to noble destiny The Lone Star forever! The Lone Star forever! O long may it float over land and over sea. Desert it, no never! Uphold it, forever! O shout for the Lone Star banner, All hail.
