A friend of mine is teaching Good Shepherd work in Uganda for one month. This was something she sent from her journal today:

Peace is the source of life. (Kenya)
If you cannot resolve your problems in peace, you cannot solve war. (Somalia)
The weak long for revenge but the strong seek justice. (South Africa)
Those who refuse to forgive break a bridge on which they must pass. (Cameroon)
Peace is like a treasure that shall never part from you. (Kenya)
Never break the pot that keeps you together. (Kenya)
Peace is the mother of friendship. (Sierra Leon)
To agree together is to make progress. (Tanzania)
A united family eats from the same plate. (Uganda)
If there is love there is peace. (Swahili)
If you offend, ask pardon; if offended, forgive. (Ethiopia)
The happiness of a single [wo]man causes peace to all. (Ethiopia)
