after the sick and injured Australian soldiers while being

the Australian soldiers were being treated unfairly by the Japanese, so he wanted to help all the Australian soldiers. The outcome The outcome of Weary's plan was a real success. He forgave his
captors and made communications better between the Asians and Australians. After Weary's life in the War he devoted his time to look after the ex-prisoners and there families. How did Weary start resolving the conflict ? Weary started to restore the soldiers' morale
and give them hope. He was known as ''a lighthouse
of sanity in a universe of madness and suffering".
He was one of the reasons why Australia had the
most survivors. Lessons regarding conflict resolution Always have hope, to never give up
in bad situations and to help people
less fortunate than ourselves.
Everybody deserves another chance,
so it is better to forgive than to hold
your anger which is destructive. How to apply the lessons in life If you see someone being bullied at school always put a
stop to the bad behavior by standing up for the victim and
supporting them.

Always try to get along and support your friends when they
need your help so that you can live in a happy and healthy
environment. Bibliograghy SIR EDWARD 'WEARY' DUNLOP - ABC
