Can we cultivate peace? Thoughts on Conflict.

 The suffering of people on both sides of the conflict in Gaza is an immense human tragedy.

The suffering in any war is an immense human tragedy made all the more immense by the futility of trying to solve conflicts through violence.

War is not a solution.

Even the "victors" are damaged by it for generations to come.

Humanity has the capacity to live in peace.

We must find the will to do so.

I am reblogging this because I so agree with these words:

"You cannot get to peace through war. You get to peace by choosing peace.

By being brave enough to counter critics who urge you to fight and kill.

By having the courage to trust, when people tell you to fear. You get to peace through the heart, love is the gateway to peace."
