Someone said countries that prepare for war most certainly go to war. If you are preparing for war in any aspect of your life, it’s time to mentally raise the white flag, to step out from any mental barriers you created to protect yourself and to be vulnerable with life. A white flag can stop a war, a white flag can wave peace throughout humanity who are suffering from inner conflicts and violence. In this digital manipulation, I made my humble efforts to depict a little boy who is waving a white flag for peace and asking us to wave our flags too and come forward to make a better world.
