In martin Luther King, my favorite quote was, "We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that 'justics too long delayed is justice denied" From this, I understod that taking action at the moment is important, your jsut waiting until someone takes action. The people that are opposed to the idea will just wait it out until it is forgotton. Being politically active will show a change in society.
From Dalai Lama, my favorite quote was, "Inner peace is the key:if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility" if you are at peace, then the probelms outside should not effect your peace. If people were at peace, then soon others will strt to develop peace themsleves, therfore spreading peace to everyone.
A habit that we could develop that might help promote peace is forgivness, With forgiveness we don't hold any grudges against people or have revenge for the person. With forgiveness, it can help everyone get along with one another,which is making peace with those who are enemies, leading to less conflict and violence.
