As the author of Elite Daily noted, “In today’s world, peace can feel like an incredibly foreign concept, if not a laughable fantasy. Between the global refugee crisis, ISIS, mass shootings in the US and ongoing conflict in many parts of the globe, it’s difficult to feel optimistic about achieving even a modicum of peace.

But perhaps it’s because our perception of what peace constitutes is too broad. Simply put, peace starts with ordinary people like you and me”

This is one of the many reasons that Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rigoberta Menchu Tum, President Oscar Arias, Leymah Gbowee, Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Betty Williams and Jody Williams recently nominated One Billion Acts of Peace and PeaceJam founders for the Nobel Peace Prize.
