Albert Einstein Quote

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”

An absence of war, based on force and military threat is not peace. As Albert Einstein said, peace “can only be achieved by understanding”
To me that understanding, I interpret it as understanding that while there are differences between people all around the world, we really are similar on so many levels. We all want a comfortable peaceful life. I also see it as an understanding, that we really are all in this together. We the human race are on this small blue planet together, and while there is no doubt that there is other life out there in the universe, as far as technology has advanced, we have yet to discover any other planets that have intelligent life. Why would it take a massive disaster or an alien invasion like you see in the movies, for us all to realise that these borders between countries mean nothing and that we are all inhabitants of planet earth. Why cant we understand that now……
It is rather bizarre that technology and science has evolved so much, but our understanding and awareness has not. We are still behaving as though the earth is flat and if we go to the end of the earth we will just fall off the edge.
