the last book I ever read (American Warlord by Johnny Dwyer, excerpt one)

from American Warlord: A True Story by Johnny Dwyer:

Taylor decided that he had to go to America to take his next step in life. He later attributed the decision to a superficial event—his girlfriend at the time dropped him for someone with a master’s degree who had just returned from the United States. The degree reflected not just attainment but also heightened status in Liberian society as a “been-to”—someone who had traveled to and received education outside the country.
