“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 the people are fed, and where individuals
and nations are free.”~Dalai Lama
