Peace on Earth becomes possible when enough people really want it and act accordingly. What about you ?
It is sad to see how many wars and fights are still going on on earth daily. Too many people are suffering from religious or political conflicts, repression, hunger, malnutrition, lack of education, poverty, discrimination etc.
We are one world, one humanity, brothers and sisters, we breathe the same air, our bodies are made from the same mother earth.
Peace Worldwide may be possible. It needs active, positive deeds by all of us. "Be good, do good things." What we concentrate on will materialize.
The precondition for peace seems to be that first we find peace in ourselves. Having found inner peace there is no need to attack anyone, to suppress, exploit others, and all the rest of negative acting. Love, sharing, compassion, respect and non-violence become natural. Your example will inspire others.
Look for peace inside. Quieten your mind, your emotions and experience the relativity of all phenomena, leaving behind all quarrels, grievances, all things, good or bad. Find out who you really are at the deepest level. At the bottom of your heart you will find oneness, unity with life. There the sun shines, there you will find inner peace and love.
Then life is a great joy and it becomes natural to share this joy and love with everyone around you.

- Black Elk

“Imagine that the universe is a great spinning engine. You want to stay near the core of the thing - right in the hub of the wheel - not out at the edges where all the wild whirling takes place, where you can get frayed and crazy. The hub of calmness - that's your heart. That's where God lives within you. So stop looking for answers in the world. Just keep coming back to that center and you'll always find peace.”
- Elizabeth Gilbert
