Peace is my house, I sleep under its roof. I safeguard it because I know if violence (the thief) comes, then I will lose what’s precious to me.
Peace is my family. I would do anything to keep them safe. If anything happens to peace my family will be affected. So I protect peace and provide a good atmosphere for peace to grow and mature.
Peace is my brother. If he is hurt, I will pay the bills. If he dies then I am the one who loses something precious that I can’t regain. I am the one who will be heartbroken.
Peace is my neighbour. I must live well with them, be friendly, and always be willing to lend a helping hand so that we live well together.
Peace is our children. I want them to learn without fear, play knowing that they are safe, and sleep without nightmares of death and fear.
Peace is my friend. I love to spend time with my friends. I love to laugh and play. I embrace peace because he has been a good friend and I pledge to be a good friend as well.
Peace is you and me. Peace is my friend, brother, family, neighbour, and children. If we take care of peace, peace will take care of us. Peace is our house, our sanctuary. If the thief (violence) comes, robs us and hurts or kills us, we will all be affected. We will never feel safe. We should treat peace as a valuable member of our family, who we love and take care of. Peace is important. We need to keep the peace so that our country and our homes do not suffer. Let’s pray for peace. But most importantly let’s live the peace, for our actions are the ones that matter the most, not the words.
My Kenya, My country, My home.
