“Instead of taking a life, I want to save a life.” – Khaled Omar of the White Helmets
Daily Practice: The White Helmets are 1,200 rescue workers in Syria. Instead of being pulled into fighting they decided to save lives and have saved some 56,000 lives in 3 years. A beautiful expression of growing their local peace economy in the midst of war. The peace economy creates conditions conducive for life. What are you doing to create conditions conducive to life in your community. How can you do more of that?
