“To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do”.

Hermann Hesse (author of Siddhartha)

Let us bring more love, compassion and understanding into the world.

Je ne suis pas Charlie. Je suis Paix.
