The theme “Peace” certainly has a universal connotation and yet it manifests itself differently around the world, first and for all by its presence or absence. When I think of peace, unfortunately I think first of war.The war in eastern DRC.
I also think about the Middle East, Iraq, probably because it was the first war in history that we could follow live on CNN.
I also think about Iraq because I have had the privilege to visit this beautiful country for a few weeks between the two wars. I think of those fighter-jets in search of their target. I think of burning villages seen from far away in the sky.
Peace, fragile as it is, can easily collapse.
Peace, of an incredible beauty.
Peace, would it finally be possible here too?
