Peace is literally the absence of war but can also mean a state of harmony in an individual person. The United Nations was formed in 1945 to promote international peace and security.

Why do ladies always go first?

First of all girls are so much more intelligent and Sweet. We don't try to hurt anyone we try to bring people up. Girls are much more sweeter than guys:)


In some countries the ladies go first when walking down a road as the landmines and IEDs may still be present. However in general this custom is a hold over from openly sexist Victorian and earlier "manners" where women were viewed as weaker than men and had to be given special care and concern to help them through life.

History, Politics & Society

What is meant by Enlightenment?

The Buddha didn't use a word meaning "enlightenment" when he talked about the change that came to him under the Bodhi tree, the change that he taught could occur to anyone; he used a word that meant "Awake" and sometimes "liberation" or the word "nibbana" which makes reference to the cooling off/blowing out of a flame. The translation of these terms into the word "enlightenment" seems to have come from the vocabulary of westerners who lived in the Post-Enlightenment era (the 1800s).

What is meant by "awakening" is seeing the world more clearly, as opposed to our natural state in which we drift through life not paying a whole lot of attention to what's going on or how things work; this is an attempt to point out that there is a better way to see the world but it does require paying attention, and is preferable to living in a somewhat unreal dream. What is meant by "liberation" is freedom from suffering (dukkha). What is meant by the cooling of "nibbana" (aka "nirvana") is the pleasant state of equanimity reached when one has gotten good at seeing the world more accurately and therefore learned a way of being that ends self-created problems, leading to calm. That which is "blown out" is the concept of a lasting, separate, changeless self.

US Presidents

What presidents served in only peace time?

The US has had a lot of small conflicts that involved military action, but all presidents except for Madison, Polk, Lincoln, McKinley, Wilson, F. Roosevelt, Truman, Lyndon Johnson. G. H. W. Bush , George W. Bush and Obama either served only in peace time or had only brief periods when they called on the military for foreign or domestic disputes. I did not count Indian Wars which broke out from time to time but usually did not last long. So, you could say the 31 presidents served only in peace time.

Why educate for peace?

Peace is the core of everything.

I disagree, education is the core. It is education that defeats ignorance and it is ignorance that allows injustice. If you look at any repressive government you will find a system that is set up to restrict higher education or if not restrict it but to control the curriculum. History is important, to know what has happened is very important and if you rely on someone or something that has an interest in anything other than the spread of knowledge you are giving someone power over you. It is not just the individual facts that a person has stored in their memory that defines education in this sense. The true power in education is the ability to think critically. It is an ability, I fear, that is becoming more and more rare. To be able to collect data and then form it into a cohesive thought or idea is what education is supposed to be all about. It is my opinion that most people do not TRULY form their own independent opinion. They are influenced by factors that have been designed to LEAD them to a conclusion. Few people search for answers anymore.

Enough of my rant! Answer the question! I believe the statement, "Educate for peace" is begging you to find out why a particular situation does not have peace. EDUCATE yourself as to the problems that have led to the conflict. Only then can people find a solution. Also, if you see the statement as a way to prevent conflict and maintain peace then you must educate yourself to know what has maintained it in the past and know how to resolve issues without escalating to conflict. These things can be done on a personal up to National level.


What is a 'Breach of Peace'?

Breach of the peace:

That means that the repossession agent in repossessing the vehicle cannot: forcibly remove you from the vehicle; stop you on the street or highway like a law enforcement arrest; enter a closed garage or your home; break into your house; create a disturbance such as a fight or other altercation; threaten any of the above actions; or pretend to be a law enforcement officer while conducting the repossession. If any of these actions occurred you should immediately report the incident to law enforcement authorities and contact an attorney.

AnswerMy loan was with Ford Motor Credit Company and had a Repo man, out of Oklahoma City dressed in an Oklahoma City Sheriff Cap with their logo, navy blue T-shirt with a yellow badge on his chest drive into a my employers MARKED "Private Parking" lot and repo my car after being asked to leave by company employees. He bullied his way in by driving his truck in, allowed me to call Ford Credit with no luck and seized my vehicle. I told my Dad who is a Reserve Officer for another County Sheriff's department what happened and he called this guy and told him that what he had done, by wearing his Sheriff Issued T-shirt & Cap was a felony. The guy got really upset and begged my Dad not to tell anyone because he would lose his job at the Sheriff's office. He even told my employer who asked about his logo on his cap that he worked for the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Sheriff's department! If I knew what my rights were, a call would of been placed to our local police department and told them my car was being stolen by someone who was posing as a law enforcement official. I did call my attorney, we were able to get another loan from a local bank and obtain the car within two days after paying the repo & lot fees they charged. Also, I e-mailed the president of Ford Motor Credit about the incident and was sent a reply that the gentleman was within his rights and could wear whatever he wanted. As far as my attorney went, I called a couple of times after to pursue this issue, but was never contacted back. Please, know this is NOT LEGAL during a repossession and you can call your local law enforcement agency. I someone who was blind, like me in what a Repo Man's Breach of the Peace can include. Thanks for reading. L Answer"Anonymous" Ok Citizen,

Your whole statement there is inconsistent. Either the guy did work for the sheriffs office (Why would he be begging to keep his job at the sheriffs department if he didn't work there?) or he didn't and was imposing as one. Either way, he shouldn't have done it, but he is not imposing as an officer if he works for the sheriffs department.

"I certainly hope you meant 'impersonating'; not 'imposing' -- if you do not know the difference it somewhat defeats the sarcastic undercurrent of your answer..."

AnswerThe Rules of Repossession - Breaching the Peace Taking the vehicle from unsecured driveways, open carports, parking lots at work and city streets is generally allowed. But the repossession company may not:

• Enter a closed or locked garage, or otherwise break and enter onto property. • Enter into your home, unless invited by you. • Damage the vehicle during the repossession or attempts at repossession. • Threaten you or commit violence. • Touch anyone, force you out of the automobile, etc. • Threaten you will be arrested. • Claim the repossession agent is a police officer or has "special government authority." • Force you to pull over to the side of the road. • Have law enforcement personnel present unless the creditor has already sued you.

AnswerImpersonatinga law enforcement officer? Certainly a crime. The penalty is a huge fine and jail time. You should have called the police and signed complaints and called the Sheriff's Office and reported him. Ford Credit is WRONG. Remember, your speaking to someone in customer service that is ignorant of the law. If he's working as a repo man as a second job,( which may be a conflict of interest) he CANNOT wear any logo's, badges, etc., pertaining to a law enforcement officer. Don't listen to the banks. They will tell you anything because for 1) they don't know the law and 2) to avoid a lawsuit. They wish for you to take their word and not to pursue the matter. Answer...Additionally, an off-duty Sheriff may not use the imposition of his/her office outside the witness of (or) in order to foil a commission of a crime [Read: It is currently not a crime to be behind on credit payments.] More conditionally, if, an off-duty Sheriff working a second job as recovery agent witnesses you remove your automobile (scheduled for repossession by him/her) from your closed garage and (you) drive off -- he/she could not follow you, pursue you, or detain you under his/her power as a Sheriff in order to remove you from that vehicle AND reclaim it for a creditor. This is true in or out of uniform. Without an injunction, accompanied by a court order a Sheriff has no right to remove your vehicle from your property. An off-duty Sheriff may not present him/herself as law-enforcement to gain access to your home or property with the intention of repossessing your vehicle. If he/he does misrepresent him or herself in order to enforce a private agenda, that Sheriff is impersonating an officer (at that time.)

Public law #106-547, the Enhanced Federal Security Act of 2000 amends title 18 of the United States Code and became effective 12/19/2000. In short, it restricts badges (and their public uses) more and creates Federal penalties for impersonating an officer. The amendment can be read at the Library of Congress' Law Library's Global Legal Information Network database at by searching on U.S. laws enacted 12/19/2000 and looking for the Enhanced Federal Security Act of 2000.

Sometimes an offense is committed just by taking on the appearance of a local officer.

There are additional penalties if an officer-looking person performs what appears to be an official duty.

(a) A person commits an offense if: (1) the person makes, provides to another person, or possesses a card, document, badge, insignia, shoulder emblem, or other item bearing an insignia of a law enforcement agency that identifies a person as a peace officer or a reserve law enforcement officer; and

(2) the person who makes, provides, or possesses the item bearing the insignia knows that the person so identified by the item is not commissioned as a peace officer or reserve law enforcement officer as indicated on the item.

(b) It is a defense to prosecution under this section that:

(3) the item was used or intended for use exclusively for decorative purposes or in an dramatic presentation to gain false entry.

Depending on state law, impersonating a police officer may be considered either a felony or a misdemeanour. Punishments for impersonating a police officer include:

Imprisonment up to five years (sometimes more) Fines (usually $1000 or more) Probation Permanent criminal record

AnswerWas this story made up? You really think that because you are wearing a shirt and hat with any law enforcement agency's insignia or letters is justifiably the same as impersonating an officer?? A repo agent can wear whatever he or she wants be it a police shirt, coat, hat, etc. one could even walk around in a dinosaur suit resembling t-rex. The fact remains that unless he a) stated that he was an officer of the law when he wasn't and b) you have sufficient proof of this (he said/she said is NOT sufficient) you have NO case.

CORRECTION: While you may not be "technically" impersonating an Officer, State Case Law is very clear on this subject. If the "repo man" wears any resemblance of a badge or presents himself as an "agent", even if generic. The repossession can and has been held as wrongful in a civil case.

In a case such as this, the Debtor need not prove anything. Merely a statement they were under the impression the person that took their car was with the government (because of a badge, swat pants, or police hat) and a sympathetic jury will do the trick.

AnswerLet me tell you something, a repoman CANNOT wear a badge or uniform that portrays law enforcement. It adds what they refer to as "color of law". What is "Color of Law"? It is anything that would lead a member of the general public to believe that they were dealing with a member of law enforcement. A repoman CANNOT wear: a badge, t-shirt with a badge emblem, hat listing any law enforcement agency, ID card with any type badge. All a debtor has to do is think they are speaking to a cop and it adds color of law. The 4th Amendment of the Constitution prohibits the government from taking a citizens life, liberty or property without due process. If you add color of law then you essentially are making the debtor feel like the government is taking their property. I am sorry if you don't believe me but I can provide a list about 5 feet thick of attorneys and professional recovery agents that will back what I said up. Any decent, bonafide recovery agent will not need to use anything that would add color of law. In AZ, there is a law that makes it a class 6 Felony to hide a car from the repoman. In case you are wondering what that law is, it is ARS 13-2204. Problem with that is, the local PD will not arrest anyone on it because they will not get involved with a repo. Period. No wiggle room. No grey area. Back to the main point of the question, breach of peace in laymen's terms is basically anything that happens that involves the police/sheriff being called. Ie: debtor calls police, you call the police before leaving debtors property, neighbor calls police, passer by calls police, lock on gate gets cut, fence gets damaged, an assault occurs (either you Vs. debtor or Debtor Vs. you, it doesn't matter). AnswerHey swrepo guy I'm glad to see there's at least one repo guy who doesn't think every repo guy can do no wrong. AnswerWell, I will be honest with you. I wish we could cuff some of these deadbeats and haul them off along with the car. However, we can't. I cannot afford the legal bills or loss of clients if I were to break the law doing a repo. It gets frustrating to us as recovery agents and to the lenders when we finally track someone down and find them only to find the vehicle behind a locked gate or in a garage that never opens. But no matter how frustrated I get or how many times I run an address, I never even get close to the thin line between legal and illegal. Too much risk. AnswerThere should be more repo guys like you.You posted the Arizona code on another thread about hiding a secured asset(i.e. a vehicle in this case).I was wondering have you ever tried to sue someone for hiding a vehicle and asked for money as damages for each day they hide the car?That way you not the bank will get the money.Just a thought.. AnswerNo, that code I listed is actually a criminal code and not a civil code. Unfortunately, the local law enforcement where I reside will not arrest on it, even though it is a felony charge. It would be nice if I could though. I could just count the vehicle stored at their residence and not my lot. AnswerNo i understand they won't arrest on it what I am saying is you sue him in civil court for hiding the collateral from you as agent for the bank i.e. a secured creditor.Do this while he is still hiding the vehicle.There should be a parallel code in the civil code equal to the to the criminal code.You can ask for monetary damages because he is hiding the collateral from you which is costing you money.Because lets say the guy catches up on his payments or pays the entire loan off while you've been trying to repo it then the bank calls off the repo you don't get paid and lets say you have been at this guy for 6-7 weeks that's a lot of time/money. AnswerI understand what you are saying but there just isn't a court around that is going to allow a repoman to prevail on a case like that. Let's say that I do decide to file a civil case against the debtor. I will have to show that I was assigned the repo by the lender, therefore the lender will have to become involved and when you start mentioning involving courts and attorneys, lenders tend to say "Well, let's just close the account with you and have our legal department handle it." A lot of courts will only allow the lender to file the case as the repo man has no contract or lien with the debtor. It is the same scenario that prevents the repoman from reporting the car stolen, he is not on the title or listed as an owner. I feel you on this one, I mean I can see where you're really trying to provide some helpful insight but you gotta trust a guy who has tried the court system as an avenue before numerous times. The laws are set up to protect the debtors, not the repomen/women. AnswerJust to retouch on the subject of the deputy sheriff wearing his badge, here is a direct quote from the FDCPA,15 USC 1692e � 807.

So, if you want to wear your little Jr. Sheriff badge and go repoing, go right ahead but I hope you have a good lawyer.

AnswerAll though The laws are different From State to State I'm An recovery agent A "repo man" can were a badge if it has the name of the company he is working for or AUTO Repossessor or some thing to that. I where a badge when i am recovering an automobile there is nothing law enforcement can do unless you breach peace in some state and city they can use a right of way law. Which state that you have a right to access your property and a automobile is the property of the lien holder until you have pay it off. Most city's have laws that restrict police, dot, fire-fighter, and Political Fighters using their badges to Gain. Multiple DefinitionsBreach of Peace is an inclusive term that covers any violation of the 'public tranquillity'.

Examples: resisting lawful arrest, discharging a firearm in violation of an existing law, intentionally disturbing the peace of a neighborhood, family or person (loud party, loud abusive and/or indecent behavior and so forth.

The usual criminal charge when a person is arrested under breach of peace laws is disorderly conduct.

How do religions act as a tool to bring peace?

By bringing ignorance about the real world around them. To give people something to think is real so that they don't have to worry about finding something to do with their lives. If you don't actually have to worry about your life, and let ignorance take over, then you've found peace.

Speech Writing
United Nations

Sample of closing remarks?

Closing remarks are very similar to the concluding paragraph of an essay. I have included a good example - see related links. The opening paragraph introduces the topic. The closing remarks provide a concise summary of the points made in the talk. Frequently, in the closing remarks, is a statement of the next course of action. Some people use closing remarks to thanks sponsors and other researchers, but this can be done in the beginning of the talk. The closing remark may be what the audience will remember most about the talk. One or two short sentences at the end, with words very well chosen provide an effective closure to the talk.

Senior Citizens

What is the importance of peace and harmony?

Peace refers to absence of hostility. It refers to an environment that is characterized by healthy interpersonal and international relationships, acknowledgment of equality and fairness etc.

Peace is especially important in today's world. This is because if we look around us, we see a number of nations who are at war with each other. There are a number of factors that are responsible for unrest in the world. The bigger nations are not playing their true role in managing the world, in fact they are imposing their laws on the rest of the world.

Peace is important because we need a better world for our next generations. Peace is important because we can enjoy the benefits of the latest technological and scientific advancements only in times of peace.

Peace is basic requirement for our existence.

How do you solve world peace?

War. And we've always had it in one form or another. Rare and brief are periods when there is not some form of something at least on the level of a tribal feud where one or both groups of folks is/are killing members of the other group. World peace is not a problem to be solved. It is a goal to be sought. And it will never be found until it lives in the heart of everyman, woman and child who shares the planet. It is war that is the problem that needs to be solved.

We humans only had peace during times of chaos and natural disaster, where we help each other. Unless all of us realize the consequences of what we are doing now, peace will not come.

Does Virginia have a peaceful repo law?

Looks to me like it does.


TITLE STATE: Yes SECURITY INTERESTS: Shown on title held by lien holder. LICENSE REGISTRATION: Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, P.O. Box 27412, Richmond, Virginia 23269-0001. Tel.:(804)367-0063. RECOVERY REQUIREMENT: As per UCC, repossession allowed without committing a breach of the peace. DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR PLATES: Remain with debtor.

Yes Virginia does have a peaceful repossession law. All repo's are to be completely non confrontational. If you feel as if the debtor is becomeing agitated simply walk away or you leave yourself wide open for a law suit. Just bide your time the opportunity will present itself for you to get the vehicle and to leave them stranded away from home.

They're are not only state laws, but federal laws as well.

How do we find inner peace?


Inner peace can only be achieved when we let go of anger, disappointments and regrets - all our negativity. All the while we harbor negative thoughts we let our gremlins chat away in our heads about how hard done by we are and how bad stuff only ever happens to us.

When you let go of the bad feelings, forgiving others and yourself in order to do so you overcome those negative voices and are able to concentrate on the good things in life - this is the road to Inner Peace but you have to work at it because it is always under construction.


By stopping to search it.
How do you stop circles in the surface of water?
How do you wash water?


Some find it through religion. Others seek inner peace through other means, i.e. yoga, meditation, etc. My personal opinion -- make peace with your past and then find your soul mate.


A Christian can have inner peace because God's Holy Spirit dwells in us, and the Bible says we can have the "peace that passes all understanding".


As long as you are pre-occupied with worry and stress you will not find peace. Many people think that you need to achieve wealth or fame to become happy but this is not true. Happiness and peace is what you can feel right now, if you can be content with what you have right now. If you can't be content with what you have now, you will never be content with what you aim to have.

Here is my advice to find inner peace. Don't spend time thinking about fond memories in the past that you can't get back (for example childhood). Don't spend time worrying about future possibilities that are unpleasant - they are unlikely too. Do keep positive future plans in mind but do not stress how they will come about just be silently confident they are possible. Peace is about mindfulness, and about living in the right here and now. It is about appreciating what is around you in the present. Listen to what the people in your life have to say without giving advice or judging.


Look within yourself, you cannot find it outside yourself. Find your innate goodness.


"How does anyone find inner peace?"

I am who I am. I am not you, and you are not me.

My life journey has taken me across hillsides, caves and jungles. Whereas yours may take you along the ocean shore. I am me, as you are you. I not to be compared to you and you are not to be compared to me. God has designed me as he has designed you to be who he means for you and I to be. He alone is our author. Release all toxic gases from your mind, spirit, heart, body and soul. Breathe...


God, grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change COURAGE to change the things I can and WISDOM to know the difference.


John 14:27

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: my peace is different than what the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled nor be afraid."

Until one has found THE PRINCE OF PEACE they will never truly HAVE PEACE inside. When you are at PEACE with GOD then you will be a peace with self and others.


Your thoughts set up the model of what is to be created, and your emotions energize your thoughts and propel them from your inner would to your outer world. The stronger your emotions are, the more rapidly you create what you are thinking about. Your intent acts to direct your thoughts and emotions, maintaining a steady focus on what you want you will create what you get.

I believe that you can find inner peace by being true to yourself and telling someone about something if it's bothering you and Scientology has helped me to be more peaceful.

Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.


1) Use your imagination:

  • Imagine there is no past, only memories created by your mind
  • Imagine the future is only a dream, related to your memories
  • Imagine everything you see and experience is a movie created by your mind

2) Use your dreams

  • When you are dreaming everything seems real but nothing can actually affect you
  • Remember when you are dreaming everything you experience is happening in you, by you and not to you
  • Apply this knowledge to your waking life

3) Use your breathing

  • Chant using your breath by pursing your lips and exhaling slowly while thinking along with your exhalation "Peace", next breath "Blessings", next breath "Joy" repeat as long as possible

4) Release all anger and fear

  • While you may be quite conditioned to experience these emotions they are completely optional and entirely created by you
  • Consider that over time they lose their importance, why force your self to experience so much time to heal

5) Accept the perfection that is

  • This is all there is

Avoid falling into the trap of thinking " If this is all there is, why should it matter what we do or think? If this is all there is why do we need inner peace when we're going to die anyway? and if this is all there is and we know we're going to die eventually, then why not commit suicide now and get it over with?" That sort of thinking can lead to a very wrong path. Don't think you control everything, and therefore you can do whatever you want. If you take that to an extreme, than a terrorist could say that since none of this is really happening, then I can kill a bunch of innocent people and not worry about it, because nothing is really happening to me.


Isaiah 26:3 tells us "Those who keep their minds and hearts focused on me will have peace."It is when we take our eye off God that we don't have peace. We look at all the things going on in the world and everything seems to be falling apart, which it is. But if we are Christians then the source of our peace is not here. It is inside of us in the person of the Holy Spirit (the third part of the Trinity) who guides and comforts us. This is difficult for non-Christians to understand and only begins to make sense after accepting Jesus as Saviour. Nothing fits the void in your life until god is there by your choice. It is the same with peace - when people don't want what God has for them, then they look elsewhere.


Listen to God and the Bible because people definitely can be deceived because they aren't perfect.


You ever notice a feeling inside, like a hole that you can't quite fill up? You buy cool stuff, a nice car, house, etc., you get a good job, wife, kids...Yet, the feeling persists; like there just has to be more. One more thing and you'll finally be done. Fulfilled. But it never seems to happen, so you pay attention to that hole, you try to figure out what would fill it, but nothing is BIG enough. The idea just sort of torments you, the hole giving you this feeling of discontent, disquiet.

It's a God shaped hole that only He can fill. Once you start a relationship with Him through Christ, the hole is now full, overflowing even. This huge hole, that nothing previously was even close to filling is now overflowing with the love for Him and the love He has for you. Joy overtakes you, fills you up, and you truly know inner Peace through him.

No other religion talks about Joy. It's always happiness, a fleeting thing in this life. But Joy, its a feeling brought about by giving your life up for God, devoting yourself to Him through His Son. You can't describe it, but you feel it no matter the situation. You feel Joy in living a life that points back to God, gives glory to his name.

Joy and inner Peace can only truly be found through God, because he's the only one who can stop the turmoil in our souls.


Jesus encourged all to " Come to me, all YOU who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh YOU. Take my yoke upon YOU and learn from me, for I am mild-tempered and lowly in heart, and YOU will find refreshment for YOUR souls." Today there are so many destressing problems that diffently takes away our inner peace.

The bible shows that Jesus Christ is guiding spiritually hungry people along the way that leads to everlasting life in an earthly paradise. As he guides them to the pure worship of God, they experience inner peace similar to that described in the Bible: "My people must dwell in a peaceful abiding place and in residences of full confidence and in undisturbed resting-places." (Isaiah 32:18) This is only a foretaste of the peace that they will enjoy in the future. We read: "The meek ones themselves will possess the earth, and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it." Psalm 37:11, 29. The bible says in the near future, God will bless obedient mankind with inner peace as never before. He stretches out his hand and grants inner peace to all who seek it in sincerity of heart. We are lovingly assured: "Jehovah is near to all those calling upon him, to all those who call upon him in trueness. The desire of those fearing him he will perform, and their cry for help he will hear, and he will save them."-Psalm 145:18, 19.


Drinking, lots of drinking.
