I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends...

replaces the Love of Power,
man will have a new name: God

If you think you're too small to have an impact,
try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.

"It is easy to train an army of violence; even a year's drill may be good enough for that. But it takes a lot more time to train and prepare men to attain enough maturity and strength for a non-violent struggle."-Gurudev Tagore
Conflict Resolution is an activity practised by people throughout the world. The need for evolving peaceful ways of resolving conflicts has become more urgent than ever with the expansion in the number and variety of conflicts. Hence, Conflict Resolution is verily a very dynamic and vast field especially in the context of conflicts in every walk of life.

The cynical in me says, well, not in a long shot, but.. the other side that would like to see change says, it has to start somewhere. Being an instrument of peace does not necessarily (to me) mean having to agree with everyone, but facilitating efforts to accomplishing one is a place to begin. As the Tagore quote says; it takes more effort and maturity, and let's try to appeal to those with wisdom and maturity, rather than those who love power..
