  Chang-ch'o, an educated man, once asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chih-t'sang:
-Is there paradise or hell?
Chih-t'sang replied:

vertical line But where can we find peace?  What action can we take that is free of violence?  Even to breathe is to rip apart the molecules of the air.

I think you must distinguish which peace you are talking about.
Peace among humans or peace at the molecular level.
Usually when most people talk about peace, it is about people getting along.
Having a sense of cooperation and nothing bad is going to happen.

If you talk about peace in Zen ... then it is a sense of no-self, emptiness or no sense of self.

If you believe you can possess the lawn then you believe that those tanks belong to me.
I don't hold such beliefs.
Please remove them yourself.

Peace is the end. Each of us, have in us, peace. Our lives begin from the end, where peace is, where everything that is, is. Peace has no opposite, no dualism, therefore peace is the end. The ending of thought, the ending of force, the very end of doing and becoming, this or that. Peace is complete in itself and we know it for ourselves without anyone showing us or guiding us to it. Look for yourself, if you cannot find peace, just sit still for while.
