The Meaning of Peace
CAMILE D. TOBIAS
One of the greatest interviews that I have heard was from St. Teresa of Calcutta. The reporter asked her what the people should do amidst the war and chaos that the world is experiencing. Mother Teresa, as she was called then, gave a simple but very powerful answer for the world to realize: “Go home and love your family.” Many of us today experience many challenges not only at work but also in our family. May it be emotional, mental or financial challenges that we face, we still rise above and take these challenges knowing that our family will always be at our side. With that, the home that has been built with love will be peaceful at all times. Because if there is peace at home, there will definitely be peace in the world. This is the dream of every person who genuinely love peace. No war, no violence, no hatred, no jealousy, no bitterness, and no negativities. This is such an ideal scenario that we would love to witness in the remaining days of our life. This is what everybody should be working at to gain the ultimate picture that we want not only for our self but for the young ones who will inherit the creation intended for mankind to enjoy. And enjoying means to love what has been given to us that is good and try to improve it so as to expand the good that is within. Peace is good and we all want that peace. Every individual should spread that peace in a way that no harm will come in any person. This is a dream that is yet to come true but with the hope and positive attitude of many people, anything is possible. Sooner or later, the true meaning of peace will be realized by all that it is beautiful.
