About this talk: Nobel Peace laureate Jody Williams brings tough love to the dream of world peace, with her razor-sharp take on what "peace" really means, and a set of profound stories that zero in on the creative struggle -- and sacrifice -- of those who work for it.
I heard this talk just last week and found it so eye-opening and interesting. When I was told that today was the International Day of Peace, I thought this would be the perfect talk of the day :)
Excerpt from the talk which I really liked: "The one I'm going to make is that it is time for us to reclaim what peace really means. Peace is not "Kumbaya, my Lord." Peace is not the dove and the rainbow -- as lovely as they are. (...) It is a sustainable peace in which the majority of peopleon this planet have access to enough resources to live dignified lives, where these people have enough access to education and health care, so that they can live in freedom from want and freedom from fear. This is called human security."
