Below are the words to a song by a Japanese singer whose name is Sawa
Tomoe. It articulates very creatively the fact that we are the ones
who create divisions (lines) and so we are the very ones who can
cross them and thus eliminate them. Justpeace is in our hands.

Where's the line between love and hate
Where's the line between the north and the south
Where's the line between man and woman
Where's the line between you and me
There's the line, invisible line
Everywhere in this world, everyday of our lives
And it's you, to go over the line
It's easy if you try, `cause the line is you
Where's the line between war and peace
Where's the line between adult and child
Where's the line between black and white
Where's the line between life and death
The line is me, the line is you
There's no line, no line anymore
There's no lone

People tend to think of nonviolence as a choice between using force and doing nothing. But the real choice takes place at another level. Nonviolence is less a matter of "not killing" and more a matter of showing compassion, of saving and redeeming, of being a healing community. One can only choose between doing good to the person placed in one's path, or to do him evil. To do good is to love a person; but not to do that is as good as killing him. To love someone is to restore that person physically, socially, and spiritually. To neglect and postpone this restoration is already to kill. Andre Trocme
