Slovenia took 13th spot among 162 countries on the Global Peace Index unveiled on Wednesday by the Institute for Economics and Peace, an Australian non-profit organisation. Compared to last year, the country lost five spots but still ranks among states with a “very high” level of peace.
I am reminded of the prophet Jeremiah:
They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
People can have the whole world, yet still be prevaded by a sense of hopelessness.
