Peace is commonly understood to mean the absence of hostilities. A simple and narrow definition of peace entails the absence of war. Some define peace as an absence of violence: not merely the absence of war, but also of evil including genocide, terrorism, and other violence. From Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. 'True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.'
