What Is Peace?
I have been talking with some friends and colleagues about a definition of peace. I wondered how everyone defines peace?
Here's my ideas about some attributes of peace:
- Peace is more than just the absence of war and violence
- Peace is not the absence of conflict – but the ability to manage conflict constructively, as an important opportunity for change and increased understanding
- Peace is a commitment to understanding, celebrating and learning from difference
- Peace is a commitment not to harm, but also to nurture, all individuals
