101 Days of Gratitude - Day #39

Today I'm grateful for the International Day of Peace. I really appreciate this year's focus on the benefits of sustainable development toward a sustainable peace. 

Wars are fought over natural resources...oil, water, diamonds, gold...the list goes on. Managing these resources is a critical component in building a sustainable peace, especially in post-conflict communities and countries.

I'm grateful that people in leadership positions acknowledge the importance of sustainable development and design and the role it can play in a lasting peace!
