What kind of people do we want to be? What kind of world do we want to live in? Many would say that we want to leave our children with a better world than we have today, and this short book suggests that “better” actually means “more peaceful.” Developing this world first requires us to develop a peaceful mindset and attitude toward how we understand ourselves, the world, and our place in it. This book explores what peace means, how to cultivate a peaceful life, and why peace ought to be part of the framework of modern education.
