Accepting the Award, Stephen Gill said that the honor is a symbol of love. Quoting from his novel The Coexistence, he added, “Non-violence is love, and love has no boundaries, no color and no age. Love is deathless. Love is the thread that unites human and nonhumans at every level. Life disintegrates where the rays of love do not reach. Love is the language of God and God is peace.” This Award represents this love.
On May 26th, Stephen Gill spoke about peace that is the outcome of deliberate attempts for cooperation to live and let live. The meaningful life of peace leads to prosperity in personal, national and international life. He quoted examples from nature and other areas to support his philosophy.
