Spreading Peace

Uncovered Artistry Boutique was founded on peace.

Uncovered Artistry will promote peace by focusing on the individual. Since survivors will be able to improve their lives financially and emotionally, they gain peace within themselves, which will impact their families and the entire community. Likewise, raising awareness about domestic violence victims will encourage understanding.

The stereotypical domestic violence survivor is a white, lower class female who is abused by her white male spouse. However, domestic violence can affect anyone no matter their sex, age, race, socioeconomic background, or sexuality.When an individual understands the struggles of another, he or she is less likely to make judgments and to commit violent acts of his or her own.

In this way, understanding between individuals promotes peace within communities and in turn within the country and the world.

Some more thoughts on peace...

Sisters and brothers, rejoice. Mend your ways, encourage one another, agree with one another, live in peace.
-2 Cor. 13:11

History will never change because of politics or conquests or theories or wars; that's mere repitition, it's been going on since the beginning of time. History will only change when we are able to use the energy of love, just as we use energy of the wind, the seas, the atom.
-Paulo Coelho

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
-Martin Luther King Jr.

We can all take responsibility for helping to bring about change, and keeping our friends and colleagues safe from domestic violence.
-Charles Clarke

Everything is changeable, everything appears and disappears; there is no blissful peace until one passes beyond the agony of life and death.
