Our individual peace efforts

From the July 16, 1979 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

When heads of state can be seen working at conciliation through diplomacy, I question my own role in the achievement of world peace. As a concerned citizen, what contribution can I make? As I think about this, it occurs to me that the conflicts that have pitted nation against nation throughout recorded history often appear to be little more than tribal, petty acts of aggression based on selfishness and vindictiveness.
