“peace is not merely the absence of warfare,

any more than true health is simply the absence of a disease.

nor is peace simply a quiet state of equilibrium –

impossible to achieve in an evolving system.

though refraining from harm is an essential first step,

lasting peace is created by actively redressing harm done.

peace is a creative process of joining i and thou into a co-creative we.

it requires authentic communication, empathic listening, and wildly creative solutions.”
