Peace is not just a colored ribbon. It’s more than a wristband or a t-shirt. It’s not just a donation or a 5 K race. It’s not just a folk song, or a white dove. And peace is certainly more than a celebrity endorsement. Peace is a full-time job. It’s protecting civilians, overseeing elections, and disarming ex-combatants. The UN has over 100,000 Peacekeepers on the ground, in places others can’t or won’t go, doing things others can’t or won’t do. Peace, like war, must be waged. — George Clooney

MICROCHALLENGE: Make a donation to an organization like Pax Christi or take it beyond your donation and get involved -- volunteer with an organization working for peace or write a letter to your representative urging the end of the War in Afghanistan.
