"The Slowest Way Is The Fastest"*

This building once housed the work of peace. Now, instead, piece by piece, it is being rebuilt and healed. It will take years.

The work of peace is now done in another building. That work, word by word, never stops. It too has and always will take years.

But like true, unshakable, deep-abiding love, that building, those words, built and rebuilt from scratch become unmovable monuments that defy destruction of any kind.
