Guest Blog Submissions: Dick Bernard

Dick Bernard, a long time friend of the Festival and the Forum, made these observations on his blog this week. Here is the link to his website:

“Peace is a process, one person, one action at a time, which has immense cumulative effects. The guests know this, and convey this in one way or another in their talks. Everyone in every power pyramid, regardless of how seemingly insignificant they might be portrayed, or feel, has an equal stake in making our world a better place.”

“The theme of this years Forum, “Crossing Boundaries to Create Common Ground” holds consistently, and while I was exhausted at the end of the day, and the topics I heard were very serious, I went home feeling hope for the future. The grassroots (all of us) matter.”

“The Norwegian Nobel Peace Prize is easily the most well known of many variations on the Peace Prize, and, indeed, more well known than the companion prizes awarded by the Swedish Nobel Institute.”
