Getting to Peace

Getting to peace begins at home and extends out to neighborhoods, cities, states, countries and across the world.  The challenge always is to stand for peace without using violence to accomplish it.  As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said in his Nobel Prize acceptance speech in 1964:

“Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time: the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence.  Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation.  The foundation of such a method is love.”
