Peace means solving these differences through dialogue, education, knowledge and through humane ways.

The Pending Coffee
In a small coffee shop. Two customers arrive.
“5 coffees. 2 for us, 3 pending.” They pay for the 5, they only get 2.
After a while, 3 lawyers ask for 7 coffees. they drink only 3, but paid for all 7.
A poor man enters the shop. With a soft voice, he asks “Do you have any pending coffee?”
This type of charity was born in Napoli (Naples, Italy). People pay in anticipation for the coffees and even meals for others who can’t.
