World peace is the idea of freedom, peace, and happiness among all nations and people. That connects to human decency because human decency is showing kindness toward others and standing up for a better, more peaceful, less violent world. If we want to achieve worldwide human decency, world peace will be one of the large steps we’ll need to make. Many people have worked towards peace, but everyone must help. Yoko Ono once said, “World peace is one project we have to do together.” Human decency cannot be achieved without world peace.

Throughout history, many people have made peace efforts. Among them are Mahatma Gandhi, Yoko Ono, Mother Teresa.

 Mahatma Gandhi once said, “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” Gandhi was a peace activist who was known for his nonviolent protests where he would go as long as he could without eat or drink.

Another peace activist would be Yoko Ono. She was an anti war activist whose protests were unique in many ways. She wouldn’t hold sit ins like most protestors would. Instead, she held bed ins where she would stay in bed and be interviewed by reporters on her cause. She once said, “When you go to war, both sides lose totally.”

The final peace activist we’d like to mention would be Mother Teresa. She was a nun who devoted her life to working among the poor. She made life better for those who needed it, and made the people she helped lives become much more peaceful.

There are many ways to help achieve a world full of peace.
