Peace Possibilities

Is peace possible?

According to Webster’s Dictionary, peace is defined as a “state of tranquility or quite; freedom from civil disturbance.”

Humans are social beings with a natural desire to connect, to be a part of a group.  We also seem to have a natural tendency to fear groups that are different and to look down upon other groups.

Peace isn’t easy.  Peace takes work.  We have to look deep into ourselves and confront our own demons, before we can be peacemakers.  To actually have peace in this world, we all must be willing to go through that uncomfortable process.

I fear this world will never be at peace, because there will always be those who are unwilling to work for peace.

What are your thoughts on the possibility of peace?
