The International Day of Peace

“[T]he pandemic has been accompanied by a surge in stigma, discrimination, and hatred, which only cost more lives instead of saving them: the virus attacks all without caring about where we are from or what we believe in. Confronting this common enemy of humankind, we must be reminded that we are not each other’s enemy. To be able to recover from the devastation of the pandemic, we must make peace with one another” (United Nations General Assembly, 2021).

Dr. Salah’s remarks make it clear — we cannot achieve peace alone, and we need our children, the future leaders of the world, to help us achieve it.
