WAR

1/3 of the world is at war

Every 138 seconds there is a war related death - that's about 30 people an hour - over 700 a day.


"What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?" Mahatma Gandhi, "Non-Violence in Peace and War"Indian ascetic & nationalist leader (1869 - 1948)


"Never has there been a good war or a bad peace." - Benjamin Franklin


"War is a poor chisel to carve out tomorrow." - Martin Luther King Jnr


"Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind" - JFK


"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light cando that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love cando that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction....The chain reaction of evil -- hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars -- must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation." - Martin Luther King Jr.

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace." - Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) American Musician, Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter
