To know war is to feel the heat of sun when it is over head on a sunny day.
To know peace is to be like a king in his own palace.
To see war is to experience the difficulties people under go when faced with major problems.
To see peace is to have access to every basic necessities – peace tastes like roasted pork.
I believe peace is a better permanent substitute for war and war is not welcomed by most people.
K. Christopher, a Primary School Pupil, made the 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.
