Without people being able to see and understand the why behind reconciliation or a grander vision of peace and harmony, they will never be able to fully commit themselves to the journey. People need to be motivated to understand how the actions or consequences of yesterday affect our tomorrows. We NEED to motivate and get into the hearts and minds of the people who are ultimately at the centre of the change, to see ourselves and others in new and profound ways.
