Peace is what we all want. But we all know that all that we want, not necessary we get it. Same is true with peace. We fight, we invade, we war to get peace. At the end of it we are in a situation where there is no one left who want’s peace. There is no way to peace, but peace is the way.
We haven’t figured out what is peace. Peace is to have a bigger stick in your hand. Peace is not that there shouldn’t be war, there shouldn’t be fight. Peace is the ability to cope with fight.
Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.
