Is peace merely the absence of war? Is not having bombs and child soldiers enough for a country to be considered at peace or does it also have to respect human rights and environment? Peace is a fragile process, a balance between the needs of some and the needs of others, built on engaging in dialogue and listening to various points of view. The real heroes are not those who want to rule the world, but rather the men and women who, with their perseverance and creativity, resist hate, exclusion, racism. These people are committed to building a world based on justice, a world that fostersautonomy, inner peace, fulfilment and living together in harmony.
