I sense the same urgency in South Sudan. I have heard many here who have said that you have waited long enough; for peace, for justice, for clean water and hospitals. I hear that you are tired of war, of violence, of feeling hopelessness. With the tools of nonviolence we can together transform Sudan, South Sudan, Sweden, Canada and the rest of the world into a place that is better for everyone, a place where we see the humanity of the other and stand up for the rights of all.
