One year and almost one month ago (July 9, 2011) South Sudan officially became
an independent nation. The day was
filled with hope and a sense of possibility for positive changes. A year later there’s little good news. According to a BBC report ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-18550314 ) there was an official parade marking anniversary with suitable
ceremonies but the news behind the celebration was less joyful. Tensions still exist with Sudan, their
neighbor with whom they share a border and turbulent history. Inflation is rising, oil revenues held up in
a dispute with Sudan, and corruption still inhibits trade.
What we wonder lies ahead? Will July 9, 2013 be marked by true celebration
of that new beginning envisioned a year ago or will we see another day with
little reason to rejoice? Let's hope for good news.
