According to the Global Peace Index, New Zealand is the most peaceful place in the world! Hurray!
An article announcing the roster said, “Americans pining for a peaceful existence might consider moving to New Zealand, the most peaceful nation on Earth, according to the 2009 Global Peace Index released Tuesday by an Australian-based research group that counts former President Jimmy Carter, Ted Turner and the Dalai Lama among its endorsers.”
I can’t even tell you how happy I am to hear that. It’ll be a wonderful experience living in a country that has such a higher volume of peace. Not to say the US isn’t peaceful (ranked #83), but it’ll be a great change of pace 🙂
