“Imagine what would happen if we had as much courage for peace as we have had for war?
What if we had as many monuments and holidays designated for the heroes of peace as we have for the heroes of war?
What if we channeled all our incredibly gifted minds to devise ways to de-escalate violence rather than crafting new drones and bombs and guns?
What if we were as willing to die for the cross as we have been willing to die for the sword?
~ Shane Claiborn in Beating Guns
