“You have done much to encourage frank exchange across members from all walks, which is a giant step” Patrick from Brazil.
“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
Travel is fatal to #prejudice, #bigotry, and #narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. – Mark Twain – Since travel is expensive and not viable for many, the Peace Game online gives access to meeting others from different cultures.
This is Syed and me breaking through the Media to learn about the drone attacks in Pakistan and drone protests in the U.S. We became friends playing the Peace Game online. I was surprised to learn that the civilians getting bombed are so angry they are joining the terrorists. Syed was surprised to learn that there are drone protests in the U.S. showing that Americans care about the civilians. With this information it may ease tensions.
This is what we hope for – Stop War
