“It was hard for me to believe that in Tanzania there is no Peace. I believed so much in my country until 17 0f August, 2013 where robbers shot a person a few steps from where I was standing around GBP Petrol Station in Sinza Mori Dar es Salaam. For sure it was my first time to see such a thing in my life, it was very hurtful for me because my life is envisioned in peace and I believed that my country is a peacefully place in the world. This action awakens my heart desire to make sure that world become as good and peaceful place as history portray. I believe that my single action if combined with that of other7 billion world people, we will change the world to be a better and safe place for everyone to live in”. By: Finland Bernard
