  1. CAROL

  2. What does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?

The word 'peace' can have endless defenitions depending on the way you look at it. Although the litterary meaning of it is tranquility and quiet, I see it as so much more. To me, peace means the hope of a better future. A future where people respect each other, look out for one another, and don't judge those around them. A world where people agree to disagree, agree to accept each other's beliefs.

  1. What are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?

In the world generally and my country in specific, there are so many obstacles that come in the way of peace. The differences in people physically and mentally are what thrives them apart. That includes economical, political, and cultural differences. From unequall job opportunities to water shortages, the obstacles are endless.

  1. What have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?

I think that the best way to come to peace with others, is trying to understand their point of view and their perspective. Understading why they think the way that they do and what got them there is key. I try as much as I can to engage with those around me and find mutual interests that intrige them. Working on mutual projects like this peace camp for example is always a good way to get there.

  1. What can you do in the future to promote peace in your own country?

Judging others is a natural human instinct. So as hard as it can be, thats what I want to start working on next, accepting those around me no matter what or where they come from. I think that as soon as people let go of the hatred they hold against someone, peace will take its place.

  1. MARC

  2. What does the word peace mean to you in the context of your own life?

The word peace has many definitions. It is a very complicated word. For me peace is to have quiet and peaceful days and to be able to express myself freely despite my religion, nationality and culture.

  1. What are the main obstacles to peace in the context of your own life?

_I live in a country where people are judged for their culture and ethnic background. Being a minority in what used to be the national country of my grandparents, restricts my rights and gives a feeling of a second rate citizen. Peace for me is equality and to achieve that as a citizen, I have to feel equal in every aspect, not to worry about the next war, and not having to choose a topic to study and find work in because certain domains are restricted to Jews only.

  1. What have you done so far to promote peace in your own country?

_I haven’t done something in particular to promote peace, but in my daily life, I treat people equally despite their ethnic or national background. And I believe that there are other people like me who seek the same goals.

Participating in this peace camp might open my horizons and give me the right tools to promote peace later in my life.

Nevertheless I know that if I treat everyone respectfully, peace will be one step closer.
