"Preventive war is like committing suicide out of fear of death." Otto Von Bismark
"Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave, and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality--not as we expect it to be but as it is--is to see that unless we live for each other and in and through each other, we do not really live very satisfactorily; that there can really be life only where there really is, in just this sense, love. " (Carl) Frederick Buechner
Peace is not something you wish for; It's something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.
