Message from Luke Martin

2015 Public Peace Prize Finalist in the Local Peacemaker category

A naturally compassionate person and an excellent mediator, this peacemaker offers his leadership skills to the House of Friendship, a community centre for harmonious intercultural relations in downtown Montreal, Canada.


I am heartbroken to see the earth and so many lives unnecessarily destroyed by war, injustice and consumerism.  But I am lifted up by all the good that is already in the world. When people see people as people the spirit of sharing is present, the spirit of joy is there, and the spirit of unity is manifested. I wish for all of us to see each other as people.
