Peace is something that the great majority of us long for, it is that beautiful quality of existence we seek, but we rarely find it in a lasting form, since time immemorial. In a strict sense, peace is the absence of conflict, violence and lack of fear.
Peace is when people are able to resolve their conflicts without violence and can work together to improve the quality of their lives, so it arises from a genuine mutual understanding.
Peace truly exists when:
- Everyone lives in safety, without fear or threat of violence and no form of aggression is tolerated.
- All are equal before the law, justice systems are trusted and laws are effective and protect the rights of people.
- Anyone can participate in the configuration of political decisions and the government is accountable to people.
- Everyone has fair and equitable access to basic needs for your well-being, such as food, drinking water, housing, education, health and an appropriate living environment.
- Everyone has the same opportunity to work and earn a living., regardless of sex, ethnicity or any other aspect of their identity.
Unfortunately, peace in the world shows us dodges more often than it should. That is why today we wanted to bring you this beautiful compilation of phrases about peace.
