Originally written in May, 2016 for a modern war history class. This piece takes case studies out of a book written by Colette Rausch, titled Speaking Their Peace. This book is a collection of stories as told by people involved in warfare all over the world. These people are soldiers, civilians, politicians, religious leaders, and more. What I examined was common ideas as spoken by these witnesses, and I came to the conclusion that war most often stems from insecurity and conflicts of identity (us versus them, for example), and that the witnesses believe the best ways to prevent warfare are education, tolerance and cooperation.
