What/who changed my life and why
The person who changed my life is my mom who taught me strength in the face of adversity.
Other people are my teachers, Mickey Renders and Anne Haggerty who have taught me valuable lessons about world issues. Also, they have empowered me to understand how one person can facilitate change.
The event that changed my life was the International Aids Conference2006 because it is very inspiriing to see what is happening to combat aids, racism and human rights.
Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.
