Upon meeting us, and getting to know about our mission walk2peace, what did it evoke in you?
Many thoughts came to my mind that evening, but one that is in my opinion especially worth mentioning it is the simplicity of the idea of peace. There is nothing more simple, cheaper and more human than the idea of peace. And everybody CAN contribute.
What does World Peace mean to you?
Living in this world in peace with ourselves, and with and among the others on the basis of difference.
How and when did working for peace in any form become personal for you?
Working for peace is in my opinion inextricably personal. If it is at all possible to distinguish when it started I guess it was when I encountered the world for the first time – in the kindergarten. Finding out my peers, and their specificities, their needs, desires, hopes, etc., in parallel to mine was my first peace challenge. Every day, we are a bit closer and we are never done.
What is your way to World Peace?
Self-liberation through action on a daily basis with and among the others.
