Thich Nhat Hanh: Understanding is the Key To Creating a World Without Enemies

3

This is a short excerpt from Peacemaking.

I often think about this story when I think about the kind of activism I would like to bring into this world. I want to help build a world that no longer produces sea pirates, or murderers, or war profiteers, or criminal cops, or abusive partners, or damaged human beings of any kind.

While addressing the sea pirates that already exist in our world is an enormous challenge, there is also so much to be done to ensure that no more sea pirates are created. 

How can we do this? There are of course as many solutions and ways of helping as there are people in the world. Deciding what efforts and gifts we want to bring to this world is up to us. - Tim Hjersted
