Message of support

Peace is like love: it can't be taken, it has to be given - and I am the one who has to make the first step. May your visit give people in the Holy Land the courage to give peace to one another.

We obtained peace in Northern Ireland through dialogue. I pray that one day a lasting and sustainable solution can be obtained in the Middle East through similar, peaceful dialogue.

You know there really is still a chance for peace and that chance will definitely increase if we each do our piece. So let’s make peace -- in our homes, in our own hearts, in our relationships, in our communities, in all of our dealings and in the world. Peace be with us all.

Those who stand in the way of peace and empowerment of the residents of Gaza and East Jerusalem deserve to be exposed and embarrassed. We must stop sowing the seeds of future conflict now.

Forgiveness and Love are difficult when differences are long standing. We offer our support to anyone who can overcome their personal hurts and care for other human beings as themselves.

Tolerance and respect are human virtues and peace is a human right. Thanks to the Elders and to my elders for their support and their values. Let us pass it to the younger generations.

Peace making is too important to be left to politicians alone. It needs the active, sustained involvement of all sectors of society - civil society, business, young people, women's groups - supported by all international friends of peace and justice.

Madiba, you taught the world to forgive, reconcile, but most of all to love the humanity in all! May the world honour you in upholding your principles, and move towards the vision you have shown us.

In our time, peace should not be a radical concept. Leading hearts and minds to believe that peace is the most natural choice will bring about lasting change.

Madiba Mandela, a towering iconic figure in life and an even greater figure in death. A hero of all time who was held in the highest esteem, would be greatly missed. Rest in peace and rise to glory.

I remember as a teenager (living in Derry, N.Ireland at the height of the troubles) an adult saying "I doubt I'll see peace here in my lifetime". They did! Have faith in the desire for peace.

The only way we can ever reach some sort of peace is when each of us look at the person or persons in our own life that we dislike for whatever reason, and treat them with respect.

Please consider the world our grandchildren will share, and put aside today's political and economic pressures. Our grandchildren must live in the world we leave them. Our problems are irrelevant.
