One thought on “My article for Relevant Magazine “Safety and Peace Aren’t the Same Thing”

  1. I enjoyed reading your article on peace and safety in Relevant magazine. It made me think of a quote from Oscar Romero, former archbishop in El Salvador who was martyred for his stance against the repressive government.

    Peace is not the product of terror or fear.
    Peace is not the silence of cemeteries.
    Peace is not the silent result of violent repression.
    Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all.
    Peace is dynamism.
    Peace is generosity.
    It is right and it is duty.

    Beautiful and still true. Made all the more stirring by his sacrifice for peace above his own personal safety.
