I Wish

I wish there was a place like an island that only people who want to live in peace live there. Somewhere that there was no need for any cop or any lawyer.No violence or disrespect to one another. Somewhere that nothing than happiness could grow. Somewhere that could be called peace Island!

Lol, I did not know that name exists. Of course I mean a place that it's name matches every aspects of people lives over there not a meaningless name chosen by authorities.  
Hope there is enough peace over current peace Island.

This place endured a mass killing of children before it was formed. It was to commemorate the memory of these children, and the approach done for forgiveness between countries. It was a move to prevent further trouble. It is still different from the utopia the OP was hoping for as it come with it's dark ghosts/shadow...although, it does show a story of redeeming forgiveness.  
 
To the original poster:  
 
I would love this idea too (along with being uncomplicated, no stress from imposed deadlines, etc., and a willingness to see the other as more important than themselves), but if there is one person, that person will bring his past problems with him/her. If there are two, it compounds. Depending on the personalities, it would unfortunately increase the opinions & resulting conflict.  
 
I am curious as to why you posted this thought, as I really expected attacks to come in response to your post. Considering this expectation, I view your post as honest but bold. I would not expect you to post why publicly, but am curious enough to invite you to pm me. I would like to chat with you further about this.

Within

You can create such peace within and then you will find others with such peace within will start to appear more and more. Look within, the peace you seek lies there.

So Basically

A place with no money.  
 
There was a study done a while ago i believe it was in a town in Manitoba that everyone got paid a decent wage working or not, and the crime rate fell to practically nothing, everyone was happier ect.

That place exists already and is called Heaven.

Interesting

By interesting I mean your choice of words, specifically the word island.  
I guess I'm really different because I believe that there is a place of peace, and in a way it is an island. The peace that I'm talking about has to do with ones one self, the understanding that peace is sort of a personal choice. Yesterday I watched as shower where visible in different areas, which it means it rained, just not here. Things like rain are different than crime or war, but in a way they are similar because I know that just like I can't make it rain, neither can I stop a lot of things that happen in the country or world. The only thing I can do is try and set an example of doing the best I can to be a decent human being, and maybe, just maybe, that will rub off on others.  
Doing,or trying to do the right thing gives me peace, so the place does exist, and you have to take a good look at yourself to find it, but maybe that's just me.

Pawprints, The Heaven will be for after this life. I still wish for some place in this Earthy world.  
 
Valghallaman, I have started working more than before on my inner side since about 2-3 months ago. I even understood that some of the things I have to do were already in me since I was a kid, but, they can be forgotten with everyday life. However my wish still will be valid!  
 
Don Brown, I agree with what you have said. Hopefully I will be in peace inside me but I still wish for that place outside too.

Peace...

If you are religious, the chance for world Peace was smitten at the time of Adam and Eve. If you are not religious, the chance for world Peace ended not long after. Man (and women) are designed to better their lot in life. Utilize fire, learn to grow, etc. There was always, and will always exist a people that want to grow, expand knowledge, build on the shoulders of earlier generations. This is progress. Medicine, compassion, war, and unfortunately, greed. In my opinion, the real root of all human kinds ails is greed. That being said, it is also why we can prosper and live how we want to live. In short, as mentioned above, real peace is in your heart. True peace is how you live your life in this world. Just my opinion...
