Cool Quote of the Day

In order for the world to become peaceful, people must become more peaceful. Among mature people war would not be a problem–it would be impossible. In their immaturity people want, at the same time, peace and the things which make war. However, people can mature just as children grow up. Yes, our institutions and our leaders reflect our immaturity, but as we mature we will elect better leaders and set up better institutions. It always comes back to the thing so many of us wish to avoid: working to improve ourselves.

Cool Hero of the Day: Peace Pilgrim

For 28 years a silver haired woman calling herself only “Peace Pilgrim” walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She vowed to “remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food.” Born Mildred Lisette Norman, she walked from 1953 to 1981–spanning the Korean and Vietnam Wars–carrying only a message of peace.
