PEACEWhat is peace? That momentary feeling when everything is aligned and secure. Tranquility of mind, body, and soul. Harmony in our hearts. Freedom from social unrest.
Peace has value, it has been sought after for centuries, each generation attempting to rid the world (and their selves) of turmoil and discontent. It is often believed that peace is intangible and unattainable. It is believed that the world will never unionize and start working together, instead of against each other. Many people refuse this notion. It seems that the only people to refuse the concept of peace are warmongers themselves.
Activists around the globe have fought for peace in many ways. Pacifism is the concept of rejecting any form of violence or war. It is the belief that any disputes can be resolved peacefully, without inflicting harm on anyone or any group. The idea is to end any and all wars by any peaceful means.
Common types of non-violent activism include (but is not limited to):
  • Non-violent resistance ("Sit Ins" or "Be Ins")
  • Diplomacy
  • Boycotts
  • Moral Purchasing
  • Supporting anti-war political candidates
  • Demonstration
  • Lobbying to create legislation
What are you doing to find peace? Actively protesting, boycotting Chick-fil-A, or spending time meditating on your inner peace? If we all had a change of heart, we could certainly secure a peaceful future.
