What is peace? What is peace? Is peace on paper or in the heart? Is peace material or immaterial? I do not see peace anywhere near me. It was six years and ten months a-went when the people of South Sudan at the glare of IGAD and UN and the world signed the Comprehensive peace Agreement into a peace deal. We wore birds feathers and danced ourselves to bed. The object was peace and prosperity for all. but why, why can't I find peace in this abode? is it because am still in rags and those who wore rags with me are influential now? why, why can't I find peace?
