How Avoidance of Conflict Creates War

Avoiding conflict is not what brings piece to the world. You will still have to speak your mind throughout all of earth's eternity. In doing so, you will become empowered, and will change the world. War is inevitable, but then so is peace. Be cautioned, however, that peace never comes without a price.

Consider those who have fought in World War I and II, or the Vietnam War, the Desert Storm, or the current Iraq War. Consider those who fight today for our freedom, and to rising gas prices. You also can consider all those who instigate non-violent (and unfortunately some violent) civil wars all around the world. All these wars bring justice, yet not without a great price.

Many times people think that peace comes about by avoiding conflict. However, nothing could be further from the truth. It is in facing conflict that peace comes. The reason why is that every conflict is has a resolution, and resolutions cannot come without confrontation. Therefore, the next time you want peace in your land, household, or neighborhood you have to be willing to fight for it.

Conflict always comes before peace, and negotiation is the peacemaker. If you think peace is worth fighting for, you will have to face conflict head on, and some how come to a negotiation before the war gets out of hand.
