A Call for Dialogue & Peace

In light of what has occurred over the last few weeks, the Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society is reminded of the cost of war. Too often in history, conflict has displaced loved ones and destroyed lands, nations, and countries around the world, including the lands and nations we live upon. 

During these troubling times, we at VAHMS call for dialogue, unity, and peace not only around the world, but also within our own communities. The world, including its peoples, languages, and cultures, is one to be loved and respected by all. It may be difficult to move forward and see the light at the end of this tunnel, but Mahatma Gandhi’s words may inspire us to take that first step forward: “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
