What Peace Is to Me

What Peace Is to Me by Paulette Ansari, Georgia.
 
Peace within is so many different things to each of us.
 
Peace is being able to sit in the grass reading a good book and not be devoured by insects.
 
Peace is being able to speak passionately about one’s life and not be labeled “angry black woman”.
 
Peace is being able to go to any public place in the U.S. (in the world even) and not have to worry about being treated badly or unfairly because you are a different race, creed, or religion or because you happen to be a woman.
 
Peace is having enough time to read a great book, knowing you won’t be disturbed.
 
Peace is knowing all is well with the people you love.
 
Peace is being able to laugh with others at yourself.
 
Peace is knowing God’s will for your life and walking in it.
