|There can be no peacemaking or social work or anything else to improve our world unless we are convinced that the other is important. You are precious–you, not just “people, but you. And we have a call to make history–not just accept history. We are called to change things–to change the movement of history, to make our world a place of love and not just a place of conflict and competition.
Jean Vanier, “Living Gently in a Violent World,” p. 63
