If we believe that people are innocent by nature, we can accept that all the wrong doing comes from the stories they are telling themselves and history they create by interacting with their parents, friends and social surrounding, over the years. Defence is the first act of war. So if we don’t fire back, we open the gates to peace. If we show understanding for other opinions and views, we build ()
