Quick Overview

Man?s potential for brutality towards his fellow creatures has pursued man?s destiny throughout history. Even today, we can observe manifestations of genocide and other detestable tendencies in Yugoslavia, in parts of central Africa, in Northern Ireland, and in many other places around the globe. One wonders how long this awful man-made madness can continue. Yet out of these tragic circumstances one often observes the promise of everlasting hope that continuously springs out of the depths of despair, miraculously giving birth to a kind of silent rejuvenation of life with its own quiet reflective beauty.
