The power of words

Appeared in the exhibition catalogue "Peace Counts en Cote d´Ivoire", Oktober 2010

He tells of peacebuilders in his own country and elsewhere, of their courage and patience, their willingness to build on even minimal interim successes. His presentation turns out to be a little different from what I (as the project director) had imagined.
