War and Peace

What an inappropriate pairing.
As with disease and health, they sound like opposites, but
one is a result of something, and the other is a state of being.
Like darkness and light, the two have no knowledge of one another—no real relationship. War happens when human beings are too ignorant to coexist peacefully; they’re at war with themselves, and have only unrest to express. Oddly, war arises from a lack of peace, but peace does not arise 
from a lack of war. It’s totally independent.

Peace is in a category all by itself.
