Peace is an activity, not a place or an end--it's an ongoing process of connection and conversation and exploration. And I can think of no better work to be engaged in. Thank you, each, so, so much.

Mandela's 1990 visits to the UK and US among others after his release reinforces my commitment to Love..to teach myself to love both those who stood by you and those who didn't! An act of GOD!

If the majority of people want peace, then it follows that, just as is being done by A Better Community For All, there is potential to explore cultural unity no matter what the conflict.
