the NO-NONSENSE guide to Conflit and Peace

I've been reading this cool book or guide about CONFLIT and PEACE. As I expected it confirmed me the nonsense of War and the importance to fight for Peace. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"Peace is really the playing and laughter of children, the babble of people saying freely what they think, and the scribble of pens, writing what the writers want to say. It is the music of people singing and dancing, people who have food, homes and love. It is people living without fear or lies." J Britton, aged 10, in school essay, England.

"Since wars begin in the minds of people, it is in the minds of people that defenses of peace must be constructed." UNESCO Constitution (1945)

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweet of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children." Eisenhower, US General, later President.

And check the FOOD NOT BOMBS movement ;)
