When did we first start to take seriously the idea that we should stop fighting over things like guns and drugs?
That our country was in danger of being overrun by another group?
That a lot of people in the world thought our country should stop listening to us?
That people on both sides were just so blinded by their fear that they could no longer see that there was a way to resolve this peacefully?
I think it was around 1968.
It’s important to look back and realize how much of a change that is.
When we began to think about the idea of peaceful protest as a way of bringing about change in our country, we were still talking about a few thousand people.
That was just a few hundred people in 1968.
Now we’ve got more than 1.3 billion people.
It was not a huge group of people.
But they started to make the point that we needed to start taking seriously the issue of the peace and quiet movement.
They started to think that we could actually do something about the situation of peaceful people who were living in these neighborhoods.
We started to hear from the public that we need to be more concerned about the peace in our communities, because peace isn’t something we can live with forever.
They felt that our country wasn’t going to be saved by just sitting there and watching the violence and the murder and the destruction of innocent people.
They said, “There has to be a way for us to really change the situation.”
And the peace activists said, Yes, we have to start talking about the problem.
And the public became much more receptive to that idea.
They didn’t just think we had to sit there and listen to the violence.
They thought we had a responsibility to address the issue.
And so, we started to take it seriously.
It wasn’t just a matter of a few dozen people who started doing it.
We were talking to hundreds of people, and then tens of thousands of people did it.
And now, our country has a lot more support for peace activism than it ever had before.
But that was a big change, because it really gave us the space to really think about it seriously and to do things that were a lot better.
But we still needed to be mindful that our activism had to be nonviolent.
We needed to look at the whole issue of violence and try to understand what the problem is, and not just the violence that we saw in the news.
The violence that the police used against the peaceful protesters, we saw as something that needed to change.
We had to understand that there were nonviolent ways of changing the situation that were working in some cities and some towns.
But nonviolent nonviolent protest had to start with a lot less violence and bloodshed.
We need to start by acknowledging that we’re living in a world in which we have a lot to lose if we continue to live in a state of denial about the threat of violent conflict.
And it has to start from a place of trust, respect and hope that peace can be achieved.
That means acknowledging that violence and terrorism can and do occur in our societies and that we must take action to prevent it.
When people in other countries think about how they are going to solve the problems they have in their own countries, it is often a very different way of thinking about the problems we face in the United States.
It is also a very big difference.
It doesn’t always take into account the fact that our own society has always been a very violent place.
It also doesn’t take into consideration that we’ve had this great civil rights movement, and that many of our political leaders have been fighting for civil rights since the beginning of time.
So we are living in an age in which it’s difficult to think of anything as peaceful or peaceful as something else.
But there are some things that are peaceful that we can take seriously and start to think and talk about.
It might be saying to ourselves, Well, this is the way to make peace in the real world.
We should try to create a society in which people are not so afraid of each other, and they can be together.
We can have a society where we can respect each other.
And we can have society where the police can be accountable.
And that’s something we should be thinking about now, and it’s something that has really changed in America.
And this is where I think we need the peace community to go in.
It seems to me that we are in a new era in which peace is starting to take center stage in many places.
People have come to realize that we have been losing peace for too long.
They are starting to say, “We can’t let this happen again.
We must change the way we think about peace and the way that we treat our neighbors.”
They are realizing that we cannot just sit on the sidelines anymore.
They need to go out and actually confront people in our cities, and we need them to think critically about how to do
