... If we don’t have peace we cannot love each other or we may not even trust each other at all.
Peace brings Love, Joy, Hope and happiness. When the country has peace everything goes well and people really care about their country. Peace is good in people’s hearts all the time.
My name is Grace Bahati Nyangela I’m 18 years old. I live in Shepparton. I’ve been here in Australia for one year. Before I came to Australia I lived in Africa in a country called Zambia. I was born in Congo but I grew up in Zambia. My family and I escaped from Congo to Zambia because of war and because in Congo there was no peace. We lived in the camp in Zambia; the camp was called Maheba. So the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees brought us here to Australia, because Australia is a peaceful country, and everyone is allowed to do whatever he or she wants to do here in Australia.
I cannot live without peace. Peace is really important to me, without peace for me everything is nothing. I may be rich in the future but without peace in my heart everything is meaningless to me. I can just declare that being a poor person but having peace, is more important than being rich without peace.
We came to Australia because we had no peace in Congo. My family was really poor in the Congo. But I have realised that everything changes with time. Now here in Australia we have peace in my family and everyone is now happy all the time.
Peace!!! Peace!!! Peace!!! Something that was made to encourage us and bring happiness in our heart. Peace to me and to everyone. Thank you!!!"
