Peace Feels Like Celebrating Christ’s Birthday

War and Peace

War feels like suddenly an accident which happens any time.
No time indicated for an accident.
No one is aware of any accident.
Peace feels like celebrating Christ’s birthday;
Or like having the first borne baby in the family.
War sounds like an earthquake which hits the world suddenly.
I wish one day God will send his angel to stop all war;
 And allow people to leave in a peaceful world.

Lakony Patrick Alex, a Primary School Pupil, made this drawing and wrote this poem. At the height of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency in Northern Uganda, CPAR Uganda (at the time the country office of Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief) implemented a Peace Building Project in Gulu.

As part of the project, primary school pupils were encouraged to express themselves through drawings and writing.
