What is the UNSCR 1325?

War’s greatest lesson

peace.jpg

‘From the dawn of time it seems that humans have always found reasons to fight each other.  We have waged war over water, land, diamonds, oil, religion, skin colour, or one man’s simple desire to rule th world. This tradition of aggression has kept us busy.  There have been people to bury, cities to rebuild, orphans to care for, and refugees to rehabilitate.  However, this has been the less difficult work. The much more challenging task has been to learn war’s greatest lesson- that is isn’t worth the trouble’
