Peace depends not on what we are taught from the outside, but from what we know on the inside. Everyone is born with an innate sense to be at peace. We can return to that.

Last time you came and preached to the choir. We in the peace camp love you all, but you must engage with the opponents of peace on both sides, settlers and jihadists.

Why is not there a scientist among The Elders? Someone like Stephen Hawking or Jaque Fresco. Scientists are idealists who could provide important opinions on global issues

Every person who claims an interest in human rights must concern herself with equity to its fullest extent, and not passively label this idea as "idealistic." Only then can we truly move forward.

Fundraiser for the Elders? Indy film: "The Lemon Tree" about a Palestinian widow who must cut down her lemon grove because its too near the Israeli ambassador's house. Sympathetic to both sides.

Hungry, wounded and dispossessed children will not grow with peaceful ideas on their minds. PEACE needs to be understood by children as a source of security, love and nutrition.

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.
