As human beings we are by nature challenged with internal conflict. This conflict manifests itself in multiple forms, but perhaps the most essential is our struggle between right and wrong – at least as we perceive it. The challenge can emerge as a battle. Over the years the battle wears us down. True peace might come if the good or the right defeats the bad or the wrong. As time passes, this seems impossible.
We then approximate a truce. We accept the measure of the wrong, and try to hold on to a measure of the right. With this acceptance comes a sense of peace. One must be careful with this approach. Is this peace or just a resignation to death?
