"In some ways, it’s a lot easier to fight and kill than it is to nurture and build. I mean, if you go back to war, it’s because that’s what people know how to do. They’re not so sure how to build a parliament or how to make a government work, but they know how to kill each other. We have to end that. We have to say that is unacceptable. And wives need to tell their husbands and mothers need to tell their sons, “We deserve better than this. We deserve schools and hospitals. Not more killing.” So I think women can make a difference. (Applause.)"
