Democratic coexistence: towards a culture of peace

Colón Arroyo, David

In times of high communication technology, when we can reach out to the most distant corners of the earth just to say hello… why does it seem that half the world’s population is at war or in constant bickering? Are we addressing the right values at home, school, community or country? Where do we start or end our constant displeasure with our surroundings, more specifically, the people we must share our immediate environment with? There is a growing need to revisit the concept of community life. The life we take for granted expecting problems to solve them selves is based upon the expectations we have of others. Why can’t we get along better with our neighbors and colleagues when there are more things we have in common than those that separate us?
