What Does Peace Mean To You? Mohammad MousaWritten by Muslims of Ottawa
Muslim Link is continuing its series Muslims of Ottawa. At the Canadian Muslims for Peace, we asked Muslims who attended: What Does Peace Mean To You? Here is the response of Mohammad Mousa who studies Conflict Studies and Human Rights at the University of Ottawa.
Peace to me means love, compassion, acceptance, and unity. Actually, unity is a really important thing to me. In order to have peace, in your community, unity is a really big thing. People need to be able to come together. I’m studying Conflict Studies and Human Rights in university. At times it can get to you because you talk so much about conflict and the lack of human rights around the world, in different conflict zones, but you also have the opportunity to see what peace can do and where peace has been successful coming out of those different conflict zones. Peace is a fragile thing. And it is pretty sacred.
