Samoans describe their island country as a peaceful place. I am slowly beginning to understand what they mean.

Peaceful is not the absence of fear, strife, or timetables, as we may define the word. Peaceful is a state of being all unto itself. It shows itself most dramatically in the way Samoans walk. It is an easy gait. They are in control.
