Stop the hatred, the fighting, the killing, the pain and the suffering.
Drop your weapons.
Go take care of the children.
Do you feel called to do something to change our world and make it a better place?
Do you feel unsure of what to do, what you can do?
Do you feel powerless?
Do you feel that nothing you may do will ever be relevant?
Do you feel discouraged?
Do you feel that no matter what you do, whatever it may be, it will not matter?
Don’t let those negative feelings immobilize you.
I invite you to go deep inside your own self and explore what you can do.
Each one of us can do something. Each one of us has different talents. Each one of us has something different to give. Each one of us is called to action in different ways. I encourage you to explore and uncover your own ways of giving contributions.
You may want to join a group of people who are working to bring peace to our world. You may decide to support organizations that are bringing relief for those affected by the conflicts. You may want to join existing initiatives, or initiate something new yourself. You may be moved to express your feelings through art, hoping that you may be able to touch someone else’s soul. You may be moved to compose a song. You may be moved to write your own appeal for sanity. You may be moved to initiate a Silent Peace Walk. Or, you may simply make a firm commitment that you will treat everyone you meet with extra kindness, patience, and generosity.
My advice? Whatever it may be, just do it!
Here’s another example that I humbly submit to your consideration. It is the story of the birth of the Silent Peace Walks.
May this story be a source of inspiration to you.
Peace starts with you, with me, with each one of us. Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me, with you, with each one of us. Let us be the peace we wish to see in the world. Let us work on our own selves to grow our inner peace and let us bestow our peace upon the world. And let us, grounded in this soil of inner peace, engage in the work of promoting justice and bringing lasting peace to the world.
If not now, when? If not you, who?
You can do it!
