"I'm trying to unite humanity one "peace" at a time. I have interviewed hundreds of people around the world about what peace means to them. Despite historical, geographical, and experiential differences, peace is a universal theme. Their answers coupled with a portrait aim to create a compassionate humanity that refuses to hurt each other and rather helps each other because we are all connected." — Gretchennj
