The many factors which divide us are actually much more superficial than those we share.
Despite all of the things that differentiate us – race, language, religion, gender, wealth and so on
we are all equal concerning our fundamental humanity.
Peace has a great deal to do with warm-heartedness and respect for the lives of others,
avoiding doing them harm and regarding their lives as being as precious as our own.
If, on that basis, we can also be of help to others, so much the better.
