A Message of Hope

Ghazi Briegieth, 25 April 2004

Many thousands have already gone.

We must overcome hatred, we must overcome violence, we must overcome fighting, and we must overcome all that.

We must concentrate on bringing people together.

We all hear the same sound, we look up and see the same sky, we cry with the same tears, our feelings and emotions are the same.

Yet there is hatred, violence and killing. There is intolerance and confusion among people.

We do not try hard enough to understand each other. We do not seem to realize that all have the same basic needs, no matter who we are or what part of the world we come from.

We must understand the differences between us and celebrate the sameness.

We must make the world a place where love, friendship and peace dominate our hearts.

Equality, respect, compassion and kindness must guide our actions.

May the closed fist of violence become the open hand of mercy and peace.

Only then will we be able to peacefully live the life we each have chosen.
