Promoting peace

Edward Ebert | Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Dear Notre Dame students,

Thank you for recently participating in the Playing for Peace 3v3 Basketball Tournament and STAND with SUDAN Peace Rally on Dec. 4! This month, millions of southern Sudanese peacefully participated in a referendum to decide whether to remain united with the rest of Sudan or to secede and form a new nation. Your involvement and concern is shared by representatives of the U.S. government and Congress, United Nations, African Union, European Union and even Hollywood celebrities. Your efforts to promote peace in Sudan are appreciated by all of us who share that goal and work to achieve it. Looking at my Alma Mater from here in Khartoum, where I am working with USAID, I am proud to see your healthy civic engagement. Keep up the good work!

In Notre Dame,

Edward Ebert
