What is peace?

What is peace?  Perhaps it can best be defined and understood by looking at its opposite: violence.  Then looking at what strategies are needed to create the elements that make up peace and that avoid violence.  It also seems to me as I work on this list that what leads to peace also leads to happiness.  Please feel free to add words or word pairs that you see as relevant.
