"As once war was exploited peace is now being exploited.
Peace cannot be introduced by another country nor can peace be achieved by the
signing of an agreement between two powerful personalities. Attaining peace is also
not a magical process.
Peace can only be achieved if the community as a whole desires it
and create peace. If the process of peace is addressed with equality, unity,
impartiality and dignity interlinked like the links in a chain. You and I can
destroy all impediments to achieving peace. "
