“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” -- Lilla Watson, Aboriginal Activist Group, Queensland, Australia
"Peacemaking doesn’t mean passivity. it is the act of interrupting injustice without mirroring injustice, the act of disarming evil without destroying the evildoer, the act of finding a third way that is neither fight nor flight but the careful, arduous pursuit of reconciliation and justice. It is about a revolution of love that is big enough to set both the oppressed and the oppressors free. Peacemaking is about being able to recognize in the face of the oppressed our own faces, and in the hands of the oppressors our own hands. ... Peacemaking begins with what we can change — ourselves." — From A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals
