Peace is an environment where conflicts are resolved without violence, where people are free, not exploited, living so they can grow to their full potential.

You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.
- Malcolm X
Don't be afraid of opposition. Remember, a kite rises against -- not with -- the wind.
