“Why center your focus on making “Liberia” a Christian (nation) State? The focus should be, on, making “Liberia” a progressive state. Not a Christian one. Progressivism in “Liberia” should be the path vital to improving the human condition.”
Henry Johnson Jr

“When you start (telling it like it is) speaking the truth, those who opposed it are part of the on-going problems that exist in any society. But it's always good to acknowledge the rebuttal of an opposition. Because the better rebuttal will often win the debate.”
Henry Johnson Jr, Liberian Son

“Learning "PEACE" is a condition of the heart. Peace is not possible without forgiveness. Un-forgiveness destroys, forgiveness heals. The privilege to be at harmony in our skins - that’s what forgiveness permits. We surrender this "right" when we hold onto resentment and animosity. A tremendous amount of energy is dissipated when we hold back our compassion, our love, hold onto hostility, and entertain caustic feelings.”
Henry Johnson Jr, Liberian Son

“Where there is oppression, there would be oppositions. Where there is "Knowledge" there would be progression. Where there is "HATE" evil will always prevail. Where there is forgiveness, there's a better Future. Where there is ignorance, there's a lack of Wisdom. Change is an ongoing process.”
Henry Johnson Jr, Liberian Son

“A true revolution is about making those who are comfortable with corruption, uncomfortable. It's about pointing your fingers in the right direction and with nothing but the truth, will comes power.

Henry Johnson Jr, Liberian Son

“When you elect people who were part of history; they are most likely to repeat them.”
Henry Johnson Jr, Liberian Son: Vol. 2

“The future of Liberia belongs to citizens, who see wrong and speak against it because what does not affect you, affect others. The future of Liberia belongs to "patriots" who preach "CHANGE" and are not merely moved by money or in the closet deals to surround themselves with the same people who are part of the system.

The future of Liberia belongs to the market, who don't anything but have managed to cope with the hard times. The future of Liberia belongs to Liberians, who had been fed "DEMOCRACY" and have come to accept it, even when what is written in the book doesn't work for "all" voices but individual voices who are well connected and protected to speak. The future of Liberia is at a crossroad.”
Henry Johnson Jr

“Asking and not assuming is the beginning of "WISDOM." You can learn anything just by asking any question. Wisdom begins with constant "QUESTIONING" not assuming what we don't know. We only come to know what we know, when we ask.”
Henry Johnson Jr

“Liberians living in Liberia. No Liberian in America is better than you. The only differences are: they have more opportunities to better themselves.”
