Peace in Our Chaotic World

Seen from space, the Earth is blue because of the liquid water on its surface. There is only one known planet with permanent bodies of water on its surface: ours. Blue calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity and is considered peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly. Blue is often seen as a sign of stability.

Recent current events have left us feeling anything but calm and secure. Chaos comes to mind, not stability. Whether it's the pandemic, protests or political regimes, we are left feeling rather helpless, and sometimes hopeless. But, we can each do our part in working towards the color blue.

"Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding." Albert Einstein

“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” – Mahatma Gandhi
