I was reminded that the word, "peace" is very subjective. Others can consider to lives to be at peace despite hardships in life.

We each can play a role in maintaining peace for example dealing with our own hurts and pains in a gracious and healthy manner, loving ourselves , being at peace with ourselves as individuals then extending the same to others for how can we hope to be at peace with others if we are not at peace with ourselves? loving one another, treating each other with dignity and respect, being compassionate with one another. This must begin at the family level for if we have no peace at home we cannot have peace at work or in the country leave alone in the world

Everyone has a part to play
Each individual is responsible for himself and his actions/choices
Also it is the parent's responsibility to teach their children and ensure that they do not run a muck.

I definitely think everyone has a role to play in the maintenance of world peace. After all, the action of a single person can be the what triggers war amongst nations. I was reading the Full Metal Alchemist manga where soldier from another country had shot a little girl and the two nations were plunged into years of war (til one kind was almost extinct). It just goes to show that every choice we make affects the lives of others one way or the other.

All of us has a right to maintain world peace in a simple way. Every individual has their own characteristics and own mindset. It depends on how you perform it in a society in compliance to world peace as a citizen.

If everyone did their part and treated others as human beings then the world would be a better place.

I think this is an interesting concept. Karis Deen and her team do their part to maintain world peace in a direct fashion by acting on behalf of a nation, but other individuals like Max Burns do their part indirectly, by just doing their jobs and being decent people. He is a lot closer to the situation at hand than the average citizen on the streets, but still, a state is nothing but a collection of individuals.

Citizens, of course, have a major role to play in keeping peace. After all, it's not the politicians who start riots or terror attacks. If every single person decides to be peaceful, then that's enough for world peace.

Citizens should really be more active in the government. Many political conflicts could be avoided by a more active and vigilant citizenry.

Every citizen has a role in maintaining world peace. Each citizen has the power to choose their leader and each of them must choose wisely to avoid having a leader that pursues his own interest rather than the welfare of his own people. If every person does is only good, it would make this world a better place not only for themselves but also for the future generation.

I don't think that people had a role for world peace. It only happens sometimes humanity settle things by violence long time ago. Our world peace are not already a world peace becaise. Some wars happened in middle east and many other nation declare war to the other nation. The important thimg is that we are humans that take over yhe world we live. And I think that some people had a role for world peace.
