Earlier this year, you may have seen photos circulating the internet through Facebook and Twitter, showing a different side of Israeli’s views of Iranians than we see on the news. The viral Israel-Loves-Iran meme was started by graphic designer Ronny Edry of Israel and now he speaks about the movement in a recent TEDtalk. By opening communication where it was once taboo, letting the people of nations know that they are loved by the ones who are allegedly their enemy, it started a chain reaction of love, showing the world that the opinion of the people is not always the same as the one represented by their politicians.[see_also]
One of my favorite quotes by Ronny Edry’s Peace Factory is as follows:
Making peace is a simple process that starts
with each and every one of us
Every time we are sending a heart,
It’s another brick in the bridge we building
SEND A HEART = MAKE PEACE
