"You cannot teach peace. You have to lead and see it done practically. The people who suffered so much are the very ones who can become teachers of peace."

—Sacred Heart of Jesus Sr. Rosemary Nyirumbe, quoted in "Heart of forgiveness: Ugandan women once child soldiers now lead peace," published by Global Sisters Report
