"Peace is our God and
love our religion; I know you hate me brother and you may have a reason;
But I have a vision brother, that we are one nation,
Build a fire of tolerance and burn all the weapons; Hold my hand and
pray with me, hear Him listen; Be at peace brother, and we shall be granted,
our piece of heaven."

Fred är det positiva i tillvaron.
Fred är möjligheter.
Richard B Samuelsson, teacher
Fred är underbart, fred menas att vi människor tycker om
Hade vi inte haft fred så vet jag inte hur världen skulle
se ut i dag.
Vi kan leva tillsammans, i fred.
Varför kan inte människor samsas?
Vi kan diskutera oss fram till beslut utan vapen.
Man skall munhuggas i stället för att slåss.
För om man gör det så blir det fred.
När jag tänker på fred så tänker jag på
vita duvor som flyger högt uppe i himlen och folk som skrattar och
När jag tänker på krig så tänker jag på
bomber som faller ner mot marken och skadar massor med folk och små
barn. Sen tänker jag på att folket är panikslagna och
dom vet inte var dom ska ta vägen och rädslan bland folkmängden
Att allt krig tar slut
Nar vi lark alsaka oss sjasva,
Da kan vi ocksa fa fred.

When grey smoking darkness disappears from the skies
And colorful colors starting, fill your eyes.

I'll face you and hold my head high.
Then by your actions, and thoughts,

"In this diverse world, the pillars of peace are understanding,
appreciation, respect, and communication. Without them, society will

sincerest hope that we do all we can today to forever erase the latter."
