"To discover your mission and put it into action – instead of worrying on the sidelines – is to find peace of mind and a heart full of love.“ - Scilla Elworthy, Founder of Peace Direct, a charity supporting local peace-builders in conflict areas and co-founder of Rising Women Rising World. Her TED talk on non violence has been viewed by over 900,000 people. (More on Rising Women, Rising World below).
