Peace is Feeding the Hungry

"Peace, in the sense of absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain or torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free."

-The Dalai Lama
