Root of Peace

by

This thought-provoking quote from His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama helps to identify what is needed in order to have a peace that lasts. For all of us who Care2 make a difference, this quote from the Dalai Lama will speak volumes:

Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.

Go here for a few more quotes from Dalai Lama on Peace.
