“Peace cannot be achieved by force, it can only be achieved by understanding,” so said Einstein in 1930. When he said this, he wasn’t talking about armed conflict or war. He was talking about disagreements and disharmony between two people or groups of people. If you force people into accepting some kind of behavior, you will never achieve real peace. Only true understanding can lead to real peace. Or put another understood you, if the world only understood you, you would be at peace in the world and the world would be at peace with you.”

Global Philanthropy Chair for Faithforce and Senior Corporate Counsel at Salesforce.org, Judith Bird, invites us to respect and understand one another, particularly in relation to one’s faith and religion. For Judith, it is only through true and genuine understanding that we can achieve sustainable peace.
