Yea i thank all those who reponse to this discussion... in my own way i can define peace as thus....a story to help put... THERE WAS ONCE A KING WHO OFFERED A PRIZE TO THE ARTIST WHO WOULD PAINT THE BEST PIX 4 PEACE. THE KING LOOKS AT THE PIX OF MANY ARTIST BT THERE WERE ONLY 2 HE REALLY LIKED, AND HE HAD TO CHOOSE BTW THEM. ONE PICTURE WAS A CALM LAKE. THE LAKE WAS A PERFECT MIRROR 4 PEACE WITH TOWERING MOUNTAIN AROUND IT. OVERHEAD WAS A BLUE SKY WITH FLUFFY WHITE CLOUDS. ALL WHO SAW THE PIX THOUGHT DT IT WAS A PERFECT PICTURE OF PEACE.... THE OTHER PIX HAD MOUNTAINS TOO, BUT THESE WERE RUGGED AND BARE. ABOVE WAS AN ANGRY SKY FROM WHICH RAIN FELL AND LIGHTENING PLAYED. DOWN THE SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN TUMBLED A FOAMIMG WATER FALL. THIS DID NT LOOK PEACEFUL AT ALL.BUT WHEN THE KING LOOKED, HE SAW BEHIND THE WATER FALL A TINY BUSH GROWING IN A CRACK IN THE ROCK, IN THE BUSH A MOTHER BIRD HAD BUILT HER NEST.THERE IN THE MIDST OF THE RUSH OF ANGRY WATER, SAT THE MOTHER BIRD ON HER NEST.........PERFECT PEACE. WHICH PICTURE DO YOU THINK WON THE PRIZE?????????

Second for sure. The picture in my opinion demonstrates the corruption in the world, and yet we are still able to hang on and find peace within ourselves and others.

Hi deetame, welcome to mylot and have a nice stay here. For me I think that the second won the prize because peace is not so easy to get like in the first pix. Peace is a conquest that each one need to make. The mother bird find a peaceful place to have her babies behind the foaming water the same way we need to find the peace in centre at the storm since ever exist a place to have peace if we want to find it. Well, this is my opinion. cheers and welcome.
