Q: What does peace mean to you?
A: It is the freedom to interact with others without having the fear of being judged. Peace is the freedom of choice and self expression. Peace is feeling happy and smiling and spreading this positivity with others. It is having a sense of comfort and place in your community. I feel peaceful when I feel accepted and loved. Peace is standing up for what you believe in and fighting for that thing in a non-violent way.
