There are many people, who are listening right now maybe a friend of mine or a foe, but whether you like it or not, I’m giving my speech for peace.
If you looked up for the word “peace” in the dictionary, chances are it would say something about tranquility, and non-violence. If you search for a synonym, it might even say a truce. I think Peace is far more than just a truce.
A truce, in my mind, is an agreement to stop fighting. If we are to achieve peace, we must, every day, make a difference.
"Peace begins with a smile." I absolutely agree! It’s said that a smile can light up a room, so imagine what a world of smiles can do. If every day, someone does something kind for someone, it will create a ripple effect.
Think of when you drop a stone in a pond. It generates a small ripple at first, but after a while, that little ripple has spread throughout the entire pond. Now, think of world peace. If someone apologizes to someone else, and they do the same, imagine what we can achieve!
Peace is the mother of progress. Without peace, a nation cannot make any progress. So peace is ever desirable.
Peace is the feeling that all's right with the world. How do I feel it? When everyone around me in my family, my circle of friends and my neighborhood is happy, eager to love, accept and relate… I feel at peace. Also, to me it means following what my heart says and sharing mutual trust and respect for people around me.
Peace starts with me, so I’ll end my speech by conveying everyone to keep smiling. You know what they say, “PEACE BEGINS WITH A SMILE”
