I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, "Mother, what was war?"

Let us examine our attitude toward peace itself. Too many of us think it is impossible. Too many think it unreal. But that is a dangerous, defeatist belief. It leads to the conclusion that war is inevitable, that mankind is doomed, that we are gripped by forces we cannot control. We need not accept that view. Our problems are manmade; therefore they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as be wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.
- John F. Kennedy, June 10, 1963
Declare it. Just the same way we declare war. That is how we will have peace... we just need to declare it.
