Veterans for Peace

"I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent." -- Mohandas K. Gandhi

Those who know the experience of war want only peace. Veteran's for Peace is a non-governmental organization represented in the United Nations working towards peaceful and effective alternatives to war and militarism.

Let's all use our actions to promote peace today in whatever way we can, even if it is simply to walk away from an argument.

  1. When it happens you might get in an argument with someone and this unpleasant contrast may turn sour, smile to your antagonist in silence and try to listen to his/her points of view.
    It shows you are paying attention.
    It usually works very well in diffusing unwanted tension.
