Accepting life as it is, brings peace and healing. You can start to heal both yourself and our planet through acceptance. Yet acceptance does not mean that you give up on attempting to improve things. It simply means accepting that there may be a higher purpose to things even though we do not see it. Regardless of your situation peace is possible now; it will never be any more or less possible than now. Life will continue its course, driven by a will higher than our own. Little we do, will ever change that. And yet, we can change our perception of our circumstances and surroundings and this will make a difference.
