To those who wait in peace and act peaceably, all things are possible. Violence only begets more violence as the injured becomes the sword wielder and the sword wielder acts to injure. But by remaining in a state of peace, only peace is nurtured, renewed, and reborn. Peace allows for thought and quiet action, even when committed in a manner of deep conviction. Acting in peace confuses the adversary who only knows violence and knows only how to counter such with more violence. When peace is the selected method of change, there is no clash of steel, no impacting of bullets, no physical harm or emotional abuse. Rather than remaining adversaries, then, such become friends through the modality of peace, working for a common good. Peace, which acts from the heart, asks for a response framed in peace.
