Make Friends, Make Peace
Meet the SANDBOX
In Syria, military service is mandatory.
I was very unlucky and was drafted into the worst unit.
Words can’t describe how difficult my service was. Our commanders often punished us for no reason. They would wake us up at 2:00AM, throw water on us, and leave us naked, even during the coldest nights of winter. But I was also lucky that I was part of the last group of soldiers to be released from duty since. I served for only 2 years.
The best day of my life was the day I was released from the army.
I felt as if I had been reborn, like I was walking on air.
PEACE it’s VIRAL
PEACE starts with the people, one person at a time. Today it’s easier than ever to connect and reach out to one another. We can talk, we can meet, and we can start a new friendship without even leaving our homes just by the click of a button. One new person, One new connection. Peace is when we see and treat each other as people. All we have to do is talk.
