Find peace within ourselves

Screen Shot 2013-08-08 at 1.09.10 AMSomeone once said or wrote (I don’t know who):

“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”

It is my firm belief that for the world to achieve peace we must first seek and find peace within ourselves.

A recent incident involving a university student in Wilmington, North Carolina is a great example of this in action. When confronted with hate, Brent L. Campbell responded with kindness, and proposed a solution in a letter to university officials. This is the sort of leadership the world needs. I greatly admire people like Brent who approach things differently in a way that can inspire others. I hope he continues spreading his message far and wide about how to achieve peace and understanding through “knowledge and love”.
