The DESTINATION

For the first PfP I chose Jerusalem as the final destination. There were several reasons for that. Firstly, The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem moved back to its origin in 2012, after some 700 years in exile in France.

Most importantly however, Jerusalem in all its glory and history, serve as a very good symbol of both conflict and peace. The Holy City is holy to all three of the Abrahamic religions, which has caused tensions for two millenia, but there has been periods of peace and prosperity and I think that is an example to follow and learn from.

We are human beings, with all the flaws and strengths that comes with that. Jerusalem is a mirror image of us. When we want to, we can make glorious things, just as glorious as Jerusalem itself!
