Faded Flowers

You say you have faded, yet sometimes the flower must fade in order for a new life to grow. Sometimes the flower must die so that a fruit can grow. In that fruit is a seed. It is the seed of a new beginning. A new life, a new flower.

The floricultural industry has been undergoing an unprecedented revolu tion in terms of the type of commodity produced and the production and marketing technology in both developed and developing countries. As a result of this revolution, as we know today, there is a flower for every purpose and for every person in the world, as is evident from the slogan of the Society for American Florists: "say it with flowers". In re cent years, the Latin American and European countries have become sizeable competitors for the North American fresh flower markets and the trend continues growing. Like any other crop production, floricultural production can be divided into three basic factors: (1) production costs (2) quality (3) transportation costs. All these must be optimum for this area or industry to be safe from competition. With increasing consumer awareness and the current recession, the pressure from the artificial floral products in dustry and also of neighbouring countries on the American fresh flower industry, and continued competition even amongst the growers, whole salers and retailers, quality in floricultural industry is becoming increas ingly important to all those concerned with handling these products. The visual quality aspects of the product are the sole determiner of consumer acceptability in this industry and, unlike fruits and vegetables, flowers cannot be marketed by just discarding the damaged portion.

Liberian President Roberts is seen as too non-aligned, and he appears to be drawing his nation away from its traditional United States sphere of influence-a dangerous strategy in the 1970s during the Cold War. Maxwell Forkpa and Samuel Dahn, two young and dashing military men, are influenced by the Americans to overthrow the civilian government. Capitalizing on historical divisions between the Settlers and tribal Liberians, the successful coup is initially welcomed by the vast majority of Liberians, especially when the coup makers pledge to return the country to civilian rule. Soon, the friends who staged the coup are torn by ambitions and rivalries, and they become bitter enemies. Forkpa is tempestuous and is charmed by life at the top as head of state. Enamored by the presidency, he is determined to cling to power at all cost. Dahn is a cool professional soldier who, though charmed by life in the limelight, wishes for a return to true civilian rule devoid of military men who have exchanged their uniforms for suits. In the clash between the two, Dahn is forced to flee Liberia. Finding himself in involuntary exile, Dahn becomes obsessed with removing Forkpa, his archrival, from power in an aggressive manner. This sets the stage for a violent conflict which will drag the two men and their nation down into the abyss of anarchy.
