MESSENGERS OF PEACE

This week, we continue our piece on ‘eye on peace’ in 2016. The dialogue continues among peace messengers and our young readers are being asked, ‘why eye on peace and not ear on peace, or heart on peace or even hand on peace?’ Even our social media posting on ‘water has no enemy’ has drawn some comments and we have appreciated those reactions.

Our intention is not to be controversial but to enlighten young minds on issues pertaining to peace and security in Liberia.

MESSENGERS OF PEACE

2016 started for some slow, for another at the normal pace of events, no change and foreseeable changes and for many in the Middle East, Europe, H-Bomb tested North Korea and some parts of Africa like Burundi, Central African Republic (CAR) and South Sudan, it was fast and furious. The turbulent period of 2015 resonated with many countries unabated. The violent trends across the globe as observed by many peace messengers paints a troubling future for younger generation and one that requires us to keep an eye on peace.
