Emerging Peacemaker 2019
The Emerging Peacemakers program was one of the most eye-opening, inspiring, and moving experiences of my life. Everyone was so loving, caring, and respectful of others and their struggles. We were all able to develop such deep connections although we came from different faiths and backgrounds and we were able to focus on what made us similar rather than what made us different. I especially loved how the approach to peacemaking was about empathy, vulnerability, communication and just being human. It left a huge impact on how I’ll deal with my problems moving forward and strengthened my belief that we all must love each other to really progress. Also, everyone I’ve met in the program has a special place in my heart and I know that the friends I’ve made will last a lifetime.
