So little is reported about normal, everyday people living in Liberia and Sierra Leone – in fact, most of the media portray the entire continent of Africa as one giant Ebola clinic, which is ridiculous, but sadly predictable.
I loved the way the reporter has asked normal people to share their ideas of what they will do this weekend, and how the Ebola virus has affected their daily lives. It’s another story in a new wave of media reports which is making an effort to accurately portray the vast, diverse, modern and culturally vibrant continent of Africa and the lives of normal people.
This is almost exactly how any of us would celebrate Valentine’s Day if our country was experiencing an outbreak. A very important perspective to share!
