June 14: Thoughts for the Day

Is it possible to have peace without war? Is it possible to have war without peace? We seem to think of a dichotomy where none exists in reality; it exists only in our minds. The idea that we engage in war to secure our peace is absurd. We engage in war because we are unwilling to address a sea of differences in a peaceful way. We engage in war because we choose not to find peaceful means of coming to grips with fundamental differences in the our way of perceiving the world versus the way others see it.
