Explore the value of Peace
Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.
John F. Kennedy
When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.
In the end the aggressors always destroy themselves, making way for others who know how to cooperate and get along. Life is much less a competitive struggle for survival than a triumph of cooperation and creativity.
Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we're frantic, life will be frantic. If we're peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace.
The deepest...dream is not the hunger for money or fame; it is the dream of settling down, in peace and freedom and cooperation.
Scott Russell Sanders
Imagine what a harmonious world it could be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at doing.
Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Having peace in our own lives should
be integral to achieving our own true happiness. How can we teach others learn what we haven't taught ourselves?
Crystal Bleu, PA
I know these years have been hard and the economy is bad, but if we all work together, I bet the world could be a much better place.
Hey bob, from Germany, I'll pray that you find peace one day too.
I think peace is alot more than a lack of physical violence. Peace is a mindsett. Anxiety worry anger fear (the root of all these emotions) leave no room for peace of mind or peace of body. Peace, such a radical mindsett of the 60's seems to be lost today not only in war but in the everyday lives how we conduct ourselves ... we need peace in our souls. in our walk and talk... its deep <3
