Peace’s message: “This is the way of peace: Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.” Her 28-year pilgrimage started in 1953. After walking 25,000 miles, which took her until 1964, she stopped counting the miles.
Change the WORLD
Peace Pilgrim’s idea was that we must work WITH the GOOD, rather than AGAINST the BAD. And she believed that peace happens all at the individual level: “I know I am a little person and can do only little things, but there are so many little things that need to be done. [And] if enough of us little people ask together even very, very big things will be granted.” What is something you work against? How can you work FOR something instead?
