Heroes of West Point

by Clari Wetzel


Clari was filming in a school at Westpoint, in Monrovia, Liberia, when she found herself bonding with one of the kids near the shore. "Wouldn't it be cool if you jumped from the boat, and I'll take your picture?". Eagerly, the boy leapt off the edge of the fishing bark, arms spread wide. In no time, there was a line of children all waiting to perform the jump. Next the masks and capes were brought out, which led to Clari running across the sand snapping away, unsure of whether she or the kids were having more fun.
