And peace is underfunded.

Secretary-General BAN Ki-moon:

No development, no peace. No disarmament, no security. Yet when both advance, the world advances, with increased security and prosperity for all. These are common ends that deserve the support of all nations

Fantastic infographic by the UN to highlight the need for disarmament in the world today.

The word disarmament will forever connect me with the roots of the Initiative of Change in Caux, Switzerland founded by Frank Buchman. In the biography ‘On the tail of a comet‘ you get a great overview of Initiative of Change and it’s work after WWII in Europe in helping to bring the countries back around a table.
