  1. Eitt lærði ég um homo sapiens en að hann er dýrategund (spendýr) sem er einstaklega þrasgefin og árásargjörn. Það er því vel til fundið að reyna að halda frið einn dag á ári og sleppa öllu þrasi sem getur leitt til ófriðar!

  2.' Erol Welte says:

    There’s something fundamentally wrong in the world when we need to designate a single day as a period of peace and ceasefire between warring factions. There’s something fundamentally wrong with the way we live, when we can celebrate world peace for a day and then re-arm, reload and continue killing our fellow human beings 24 hours later, as if it’s business as usual. There’s something fundamentally wrong when every day isn’t celebrated as an International Day of Peace.

  3.' Mary F. says:

    Bring on the Good!
