"Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the presence of God no matter what the conflict." -- ANONYMOUS No matter what our political beliefs are, I think we would all agree that the political and financial worlds are anything but positive, predictable or peaceful. I know we all want peace and we are all praying for peace. I also know that we have different views about how peace can best be attained in these trying and tumultuous times. We need to continue to pray for those who make daily decisions that do and will have worldwide effect.

Jeff Benson To an eighth-grader, the biggest news of the week might not be the latest hurricane to storm across Florida, the presidential debates or the steaming eruption of Mount St. Helens. Not when "Shark Tale" was just released in theaters and when baseball's Anaheim Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers clinched their respective divisions. Christine Christopher understands how her students think, but the eighth-grade honors English teacher at TeWinkle Middle School attempted Monday to push the importance of national and world news and how it affects them.

Deirdre Newman A traditional celebration of peace turned into a quest for peace when Orange County residents of diverse faiths united for the 2001 Peace Walk on Saturday. The Peace Walk, which took place at Triangle Square in Costa Mesa, is an annual event that honors the United Nations' International Day of Peace. . But this year, as the United States prepares its military for possible warfare in response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the ceremony highlighted the need for peace at the local, national and global levels.

"Drinking a cup of tea, I end the war." It seems simplistic and sugary, yet invites each of us to take responsibility for bringing peace to our lives and the world, moment by moment. In Zen, each person tries to find his or her way in family life, the work place, political involvements and all forms of community life, whether local or global. We deepen our appreciation that each moment and every act participates in the whole. We do not have to be secretary of state to make a difference: all of our activities are influencing everyone everywhere.

Between graduating from college in 1966 and entering law school in 1968, I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Costa Rica. Many times since my return, people have told me that they always had wanted to be in the Peace Corps. My response almost always has been, well it was a great experience, and it’s not too late for you to do it now. But invariable the people then come up with some sort of explanation as to why they can’t do it, at least not now. Well, in 2011, the Peace Corps will be celebrating its 50th birthday, and it is continuing to do good work.
