PENANG: A visually impaired computer instructor of the St Nicholas Home for the Visually Impaired here has come up with a special peace message for the world.
The instructor Silatul Rahim Dahman, 34, said the message was about how he felt about peace. It reads:
Peace is ... No war No fighting No discrimination No second-class citizenship No double standard ... That’s PEACE!
As he typed the words out, his colleague V. Thangaveloo, who is also visually impaired, joined him and typed it out on a Braille typewriter.
Home executive director Suresh Kumar said money used to buy and make weapons should be spent on the needy.
“War between two nations not only affects the two countries but also others who may be dragged into the situation,” he added.
These messages of peace are part of a signature campaign which is organised by Peace Malaysia, a coalition of 237 NGOs. The coalition is collecting a million signatures.
