🕊a lot of people seem to think of the meaning of the word peace as one dimensional- a word used to reminisce over the decade of the 1960s and all its connotations of hippies, free love, flower power etc. but the fight for peace is something that truly extends far beyond, and even far before this decade.
peace may only be 1 word, but it encompasses a whole range of things. of course, it means an absence of conflict. but if we break this down further, peace also means an absence of hatred and discrimination. it means acceptance of all, regardless of race, gender, s****l orientation, and any label you can possibly think of. peace even extends beyond human interaction- it’s protecting animals, and of course the environment around us.
when you open up the definition of this word, it sadly becomes clear that the world is far from peaceful. but, we can still look for the good. everyone can make changes to their lives to fight for peace. obviously the scale of change greatly varies, but it’s a start.
