Peace in the midst of poverty...

As the UN's 5 year mission in Sierra Leone comes to an end questions arise regarding the stability and safety of the country. Is it only peaceful on the surface? Is the country like a volcano, waiting to erupt? I don't know what the next weeks and months will bring. Sierra Leone is still one of the poorest countries in the world. And along with poverty come corruption, injustice, instability. Only time can tell what will happen in this country. I can only hope and pray that the people will stand together, keep peace and work together to re-build their beautiful country.
