We have always stated herein, the existence of peace in this planet stretches far beyond the absence of war and other unspecified physical might and strengths. Peace in the world begins right in our hearts, to the homes or family, national and international level.
To achieve the ideals of sustainable peace, progress and prosperity in the world, people have to inculcate the spirit and culture of peace in themselves and their children at a tender age.
We therefore need not reiterate the significance of peace.Without peace, this world would not be a place fit for human survival. Peace here refers to an inner sense of calm that can come in moments of silent gratitude or prayers. It is a way of becoming very quiet and looking at things so as to understand them. It is also about facing your fears and then letting them go with the trust that things will be all right.
The Gambia is well known for its peace and stability. Let us therefore nourish the culture of peace and stability that this country is known for. It is common sense that when each of us is peaceful, all those who in one way or the other come in contact with us will feel loved, respected and treated fairly, above all we would begin to see our differences as benefits rather than a cause to fight.
We would not see our differences as a threat to who we and what we are. We would not judge others by what we heard but rather we would judge them through what we know.
