The War to End all Wars

Recently I was in France.

As a born-Canada, I was able to visit some of the locations of major battles during World War I and World War II involving Canadian troops. Dieppe, Juno Beach, Gold Beach, and Vimy Ridge.

Vimy Ridge

Vimy Ridge was a major battle during World War I – a war termed as the War to End all Wars.

The War to End All Wars

This begs a question. If there is no war, does this, by default, mean there is peace? What is peace? Can there ever be peace?

This is what I depart this blog post.  Three questions about peace.

A Call To Action

The next time you feel yourself getting into an argument or disagreement, step back for a few minutes and take a deep breathe.  What is the argument really about?  Is it worth arguing, or can you explore and discuss differences in a respectful conversation.
