Peace on earth, good will toward all[edit | edit source]

Choose peace.

We can heed the advice of John Lennon, and give peace a chance.

The Seville Statement on Violence concludes:

Reverend A.J. Muste recognized that: "There is no way to peace; peace is the way."[1]

The previous topics in this course have shown you that way, you are now prepared to choose peace.
