Sometimes life could be full of Why? Why funding war instead of feeding the poor, Why creating poverty to your own people, nation and the world? Why can’t we let go of all the pointless dramas and those who create it and focus our minds solely on how to tolerate and care for one another to make the world a better place for us all to live. Why the discrimination against women and Children? Violence is a strong enemy of Peace; it brings about agony, horror, pains and human destruction. Sometimes it begins with a mere quarrel or a fight but sooner than later it transforms into a huge Conflict ranging from tribal, ethnic and religious disputes. This if not prevented or resolved result into wars which brings much sufferings and disasters to the entire mankind. Now is the time for everyone to develop the culture of peace throughout the world, Forgive, for without Forgiveness, Life is full of Resentment and Retaliations. Let us employ dialogue in tabling grievances and not violence. Join me in my crusade of Violence No more, Terrorism no more and War no more. Let us put aside prejudice, ethnicity, nativity, Nepotism, tribalism, racism, and all forms religious fanaticism. Let us work together for a common goal of Peace and a United Nations.

This is not just an article but a big message and advice to world leaders but especially to Africa leaders.This message couldn't have come anytime better than now when our continent is ravaged with avoidable war, poverty, disease and starvation. For the world to be a better place to live in, we must all preach peace and promte unity in diversity irrespective of our religion and socio-economic background.

Michael, Good job brother. It's good to preach the message of peace and development instead of civil war and conflict to the world. Hope your message will inspire the world at large brother.

IT GETTING SERIOUS The situation in Libya is getting worse than ever,it is imperative for a neutral force to be sent to secure the ground rather exposing women and merely children to die from either the bullets or no medical attention including hunger rather than chasing GADAFFI. For as it said violence acheives nothing not even counter violence for it causes an astornishing amount of destructions to both properties and human life so NATO should consider it bombing raids operations.Always think about PEACE as it is sweeter than water.

"Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances". we are to safeguard our dignity and the dignity of others in order to achieve our goals and for the entire world.let us hold up the mission and the success of POTI we then acknowledge others.

It helps when we read how others feel. Especially when they question "WHY" directly. Helps me know others feel the way I do. Gives us strength to continue work and question "WHY". Thank You MICHAEL EDEH, I am so glad I found this blog message today, as you wrote it last year.
