"As we watch the world embrace the Olympics in the coming days,
let us remember why the modern Olympics came into being:
to bring nations closer together, to have the youth of the world
compete in sports, rather than fight in war.
As long as we believe our own war-driven thoughts, there will
always be war, in ourselves, in our families, and in our world.
As long as we believe our thoughts, there will always be war. "
