“Only when peace lives within each of us, will it live outside of us. We must be the wombs for a new harmony. When it is small, peace is fragile. Like a baby, it needs nurturing attention. We must protect peace from violence and perversion if it is to grow. We must be strong to do this. But force, even in the name of honor, is always tragic. Instead, we must use the strength of wisdom and conscience. Only that power can nurture peace in this difficult time.”

Yes, indeed, we must work for peace, first within ourselves. The sticking point is the power of corporate America, a power that more often than not, convinces the masses that peace is not the answer, and wars to protect the powerful come into play.
