Resentments against contemporary people as a result of past events are certainly "absurd resentments". They are like gravestones that weigh us down almost from the very time we are born. They are shackles, a slave to the past. "Once we have finished with these absurd resentments" those living today are free and able not to enslave new generations with this absurd instrument of subjugation.


Here, the Letter of Peace also questions one of its main subjects which is one of the words more often written-- four times. This subject is friendship: "Why can we not be friends?" Making enemies leads to fighting and wars; on the contrary, a friendly attitude -which is the common denominator existing between different kinds of human relations- allows the construction of peace.


Peace cannot be done on its own. It is necesary to work at it. The majority of people spend most of their time in the workplace. But if this work is done in a hostile way, under coercion, by force, without mercy, with little freedom, without beauty nor creativity, done only for the attainment of power, because of ambition as it happens many times, work, I repeat, becomes a hell or at least a purgatory which is something very far from peace.
What is more, the result of a job done this way will probably be deprived of human qualities. This is a new obstacle for peace. Only by being friends we are able to "work together globally to build a more united and gratifying world" for the already existing people in order to leave it as an inheritance to the ones who will start to live.
