first_imgThe thinking part of this country knows that the peace roadmap is just another architecture housing our emptiness.Each day this emptiness is widened by their long conferences, talk-show discourses, and white papers that continue to deceitfully fill our gaps.My heart battles with a biting question a “comrade”once asked saying “Is war, violence, or bad-mouthing advocacy the sourceof political riches?

If there is a heartthat needs to be healed, then where is the breaker. If there is a sin thatneeds to be forgiven, then where is the repented brethren? And if thereis a crime that needs to be forgiven, where is the criminal? Or are theypoliticking our peace? Religious and legal wisdom suggest that while the burdenof forgiveness is with the victim, the task of resolution weighs on the doer.What wisdom do the peace architects’ strategic objectives, indicators, logical frame work,and constructed milestones suggest too?Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
