President Obama's Inaugural speech
Dr. Sirleaf, son of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia addressed fellow Liberians at a grand Ball marking the celebration of Liberia's 162nd Independence Anniversary.

In his usual casual mood and professional attire, Dr. sirleaf beat the Liberian time arriving first among Liberian guests and waited patiently for another hour before stepping to the podium.
Dr. Sirleaf encouraged Liberians to be hopeful and patient as we recover from the deplorable conditions caused by the war.
He used his professional experience as Medical Doctor to explained statistical data released by WHO and other reputable international organization about HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other communicable diseases that threaten the lives of ordinary Liberians.

As a proud son of Liberia, Dr. Sirleaf raised his hands to respond to a call for Nimbaians in the house, and inspired young Liberians when he whispered clearly in his speech saying, " I was who I am before she became President."

The event was attended by several hundred Liberians from across Connecticut and other parts of the United States. Other African nationals and Americans attended as well.  They joined Liberians to screamed out loud as the Hartford Dance Crew headed by Savior Harmon displayed an outstanding cultural performance.

Hon. Rufus Walters, LCAC Board Chairman urged Liberians to attend community meetings and to foster true spirit of nationalism with fellow Liberians. He also called for strong collaboration between the board and the administration.

The Ball was preceded by a soccer tournament that was won by Ghanaian Black Stars of East Hartford, followed by the Zambians national side from Bridgeport, Lone Star of Hartford and CAF from central Connecticut.

LCAC Vice President, Hon. Joseph Morris acknowledged the absence of the president Hon. Alex Quermollue who was recovering from a brief illness. He closed with special thanks to the chief organizer, Hon. Charles Mcgill and his team for doing a great work.
