Peace is...

P-E-A-C-E

Talk about a loaded word.
What does it mean to you?
How can it be achieved around the world?

These questions and more are being currently posed by the World Peace Initiative. This movement is currently challenging the citizens of the world to consider what peace means to them.

Is it no war? Music? Serenity and understanding amongst cultures? Spending time with family and friends?

Currently, volunteers are needed to provide their ideas of what peace is. It is super easy and simple to get involved. All that needs to be done is to take a picture with what your idea of peace is. Submit it and encourage those around you to do the same. (Follow the above link for further details)

In September, there will be a major launching event for this initiative here in South Korea. Parades, performances, and the unveiling of a monument incorporating all of the pictures that have been collected so far will highlight the event.

Check out the website and ask yourself: What is peace?

To me, peace is cultural understanding.

What about you?
