There are two ways of getting richer. Either you need less or you get more. Only when society will be based on the first, peace and justice will prevail.

I appeal to all South Africans to uphold the legacy of our dear Madiba, of forgiveness, tolerance and humanity. We appear to have lost our moral compass!

True Peace evolves from within. . Change is inevitable. Let go of that which does not serve in the name of Peace. Children are our future and they prefer Love, Peace and Joy.

Peace is the absence of conflicts, chaos, violence, and destruction. Peace is the presence of caring, love, kindness, mindfulness, goodwill, harmony, collaboration, unity, and compassion.

Grief can interrupt the abiity to build peaceful relationships. It can even obstruct the ability to see that possibility. Healing grief, then, is an integral part of the peacemaking process.

The conflict in the Middle East has been going on for far to long; and far too many lives ruined or lost; For God's sake it must stop now.

Peace making is too important to be left to politicians alone. It needs the active, sustained involvement of all sectors of society - civil society, business, young people, women's groups - supported by all international friends of peace and justice.

He forgave his opponents, which was remarkable. But even more striking is that he did not impose shame upon them. Instead he invited them to feel pride in the new world he created. He will be missed!
