Founded in 2004, Straight From The Heart was a radio program aired by the United Nation Mission on Liberia radio. It allowed Liberians to phone in live and share their stories from the Second Liberian Civil War (1999 - 2002).
The organization today looks at how Liberians can become reconciled to what happened to them. It tries to heal both victims and perpetrators who carry the guilt of atrocities they committed during the war, with the hope that Liberians can reunite.
Getting over the past is never easy. It does not mean forgetting. Rather, it means acknowledging what came before in order to live together once again. What does reconciliation really mean? What are the fundamental issues? Is reunification a desirable goal for us in Liberia? After years of civil war, how can Liberia society achieves peace?
