Bridges are in human society – symbols of connection, of cooperation and of harmony.
When harmony breaks down and conflicts ensue, the destroying of bridges is usually among the most urgent targets.
But when peace and healing come, then it is the construction and rehabilitation of bridges that marks our progress.”

Excerpt from remarks by His Highness the Aga Khan
