"Painting Peace" by Kazuaki Tanahashi


'Awakening,’ says Kazuaki Tanahashi, ‘is to realize the infinite value of each moment of your own life as well as of other beings, then to continue to act accordingly.’ This book is the record of a life spent acting accordingly: Through his prose, poetry, letters, lyrics, and art, Tanahashi provides an inspirational account of what it’s been like to work for peace and justice, from his childhood in Japan to the present day.

She is studying International Relations and hopes to work in international human rights. In her free time, she loves cooking, reading and doing yoga. Samantha has greatly enjoyed putting this library together and is excited to continue to explore the idea of literature as a tool for peacebuilding.
