This is an extremely important TED Talk…by Nobel Peace Prize winner, Jody Williams. The Dalai Lama told her he doesn’t believe that prayer or mediation will change the world, no one does, it’s action, that’s needed. Please watch this wonderful lecture.

    • I liked it too because she was honest. No quick fixes and non violence isn’t always the answer. It’s terrible that peacemakers end up in jail for years and years because we live in such a hateful and violent world. Makes me sick.

        It’s hard to believe how violent it is. It takes less time & energy to be peaceful, and it leaves a lot more time for doing neat stuff.
        It’s an unfathomable thing to me, but I see it, I get that some people are hell bent on perpetuating it, and that hate and violence and domination and desecration are …. I have no words now.

  1. There’s no profit/money in peace and that’s why we will never have it.
