"The International Peace Light - 1986 - 2016"

"This year marks the Thirtieth Year since the Peace Light was originally kindled in Bethlehem to be brought back to Vienna"

"Thank You to everybody across the world who has been involved with this project over the years, helping to distribute the flame, sharing with others, and providing Services and Opportunities to share that "little flame" that means so much, to many people - The UK Organising Team"

"The poem below was included on the "World War I - Remembrance" page but I feel the sentiment is as much as applicable to the past 30 years and the future - G@z"

There will be no peace:

till attitudes change;

till self-interest is seen as part of common interest;

till old wrongs, old scores, old mistakes are deleted from the account;

till the aim becomes co-operation and mutual benefit rather than revenge or seizing maximum personal or group gain;

till justice and equality before the law become the basis of government;

till basic freedoms exist;

till leaders - political, religious, educational - and the police and media wholeheartedly embrace the concepts of justice, equality, freedom, tolerance, and reconciliation as a basis for renewal;

till parents teach their children new ways to think about people

There will be no peace:

till enemies become fellow human beings.

"David Roberts - 1999"
