Peace is Possible, just have to try

The state of the world today. Global numbers of refugees are falling dramatically as people return to former war zones, the United Nations says.thanks to improving conditions in states including Afghanistan, Angola and Sierra Leone, among others. The reduction in cross-border wars and conflicts in the past five years had contributed to the fall in refugee numbers. But, the UN warns, the reduction in refugees may prove to be temporary because of continuing instability in some of the worst-hit areas of the world, coupled with a rise in civil wars, internal conflicts and the growing crises of internal displacement.
