In the current times we often get to hear news about bomb explosions that keep pouring in every other day. We often get to see photographs of mutilated bodies of women and children on social media. Assassinations and suicide bombers have found a permanent place in the newspaper headlines. In such a scenario hearing about a Global Peace Summit is like lighting a candle in the dark.
The Global Peace Summit doesn’t mean to be peaceful in real sense of the word. It’s about just trying to be self, being the species that we are – the human being who loves peace. It’s all about striving to be peaceful within us first in order to establish peace around us. What we aim to attain around us needs to be first established within us. Every individual on earth is special and is gifted with natural talents. We are at GPS to focus on the brighter side and leave the rest. We are at GPS to explore the strengths, groom oneself, and march ahead
leaving a track for others to follow.
I believe GPS will also be instrumental in developing communication skills, dialogue, providing cross cultural exchange opportunities, handling conflicts, and compassion and leadership qualities beyond faith, ethnic values, and nationality. These traits impact an individual which further affects the whole family, the community, the nation, and the whole world.
