Non-peace promoting actions are generally camouflaged in excuses like "this was an exception" or "it was necessary to help others". Peace is not an option though, it is a road without rabbit trails. A person is either on the road of peace on they are not. There is not a path that leads to peace, rather there is a path that is called peace and from it there are no turn arounds, exits or intersections.
Pursuing peace means self-confidence, purpose, courage and compassion are heightened and the ability to speak peace into any situation is refined and powerful.
