Jonah was motivated to serve Peace Through Action because “I see value that peace can bring into a community. Violence does nothing but cause pain and suffering; therefore, it needs to be decreased. I am a political science student at Clemson University and wish to gain different skills and disciplines that I can put into practice throughout my professional career. I believe that peace and love are keys to living happily, and so I wish to exhibit those attributes in all components of my life.”
