DONA NOBIS PACEM... GRANT US PEACE...

PEACE... is just a simple word yet connotes a HUGE meaning.

But what is really peace all about?

Understanding peace is just like understanding your own self and understanding others. So in order for you to better understand it, you should really have state of balance and understanding in yourself and between others where respect is gained.

Many different theories of "peace" exist in this world which involves the study of conflict resolution, disarmament, and cessation of violence. The definition of "peace" alone may vary with one's religion, culture, tradition, country, or even one's opinion.

Since I was born and have had my knowledge about the world and everything, peace had always been the issue in different parts the world. It has always been one of the greatest challenge for mankind and a dream that has yet to be fulfilled...

We use the word 'peace' a great deal. And more often, we connect peace with the context of war... war that really causes suffering, death and destruction on a huge scale. But peace is not only about war and relations between nations. Peace is a way of life — not that we are always the peaceful people we wish to be, but that we choose peace as a basic direction in which we are attempting to move.

All of us are subject to help peace happen — in our families, in our work places, in our neighborhoods, and in the wider world. Anything we do that draws us closer to each other, that inspires forgiveness, or that brings about real dialogue is considered a work for peace.

Peace work is healing work. In fact, this is one way of defining peace. Peace work is what we do to repair damaged relationships — healing between ourselves and God, healing between one person and another, healing between divided communities and nations. Those who work for peace are in fact working for healing.

So let us all work hand in hand... let us achieve our common goals of peace... let us be united for once and for all... The change is just in our hands.

GRANT US PEACE...
