Waris Dirie's Acceptance Speech - The 2019 Sunhak Peace Prize Award Ceremony

The 2019 Sunhak Peace Prize Award Ceremony Waris Dirie Waris Dirie was one of the two laureates of the 2019 Sunhak Peace Prize Award Ceremony for her works as a human rights activist who publicized the issue of female genital mutilation (FGM) to the World.  "But I never forgot about my roots and my humanitarian mission. I have seen and experienced inconceivable violence. As a child, I almost died after the cruel torture of female genital mutilation. I asked myself why people engage each other in such cruel ways. It cannot be the will of a good God, that we humiliate each other, kill and torture each other. We are the ones making this world a living hell for others, and even for ourselves.  And I have asked myself - why? Do we love each other too little? Do we respect each other too little? Do we respect ourselves too little? Are those the reasons why all this cruel and evil is happening?  When and where do we learn love and respect?" Pleas

There's still so much to do to make the world a better place for all. That's why this Sunhak Peace Prize is a great inspiration for me. It is a call to do more fore those least privileged around the world and especially in Africa. So, let's turn our swords into plows and our spears into pruning forks.
