The Journey of Peace"
"Peace is not only better than war, but infinitely more arduous."
George Bernard Shaw
As this amazing journey to Northern Ireland begins to come to a close, I am becoming profoundly aware of those things that I will be taking with me. I don't simply mean the obligatory souvenir shopping. The most precious thing that I will take from this place are the memories of the people and their stories that have made this such a fascinating and profound experience.
in the pub, a tour guide teaching us about his beautiful city, or peacemakers who gave of their time to share their journey. They shared their generosity of spirit, their humor, their pain and their own hopes, beliefs and dreams.
