in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country.
Peace can only last where
human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.
--Dalai Lama

Rather it is a true definition of peace. I don't like the word truer.
