I’ve never reached the point of hopelessness where I felt I wouldn’t survive. I’ve reached many points of disappointments. After the 1997 elections, for example, after all the effort we made and the results that were announced. “It’s an impossible task. We’re dealing with a warlord who has immense power, who has the support.” The first thing one gets is, “Forget it. Give it up. Go back into international professional life.” It took a little bit of resolve and reflection to say, “You can’t give up. You’ve got to stay the course and suffer the consequences, the indignities and the difficulties.” But I think that was a low point, right after those elections when everything just seemed like an exercise in futility.
