Brick by brick, life must be rebuilt after a conflict. It takes time to recover and resolutions may or may not be found. Countries and communities that were divided or destroyed need time to heal, to be reimagined, or sometimes even abandoned. For some, a parent, child or family member might be injured or not return at all. As time passes, community events, memorials and days of remembrance are held to honour those who were lost and provide opportunities for reflection.
Resolve. Recover. Rebuild. Reflect. Remember.
Share your thoughts on how people, communities and countries build a life after conflict using poetry, art, speech and song.
