September 21, 2014, International Day of Peace…
Today was a good day.
I was joined by many peacemakers at daybreak and we walked in silence for peace.
Peace-loving people all over the world did something to expand awareness about Peace Day and demand a better world for all. The People’s Climate March, the Campaign Nonviolence, and the Global March for Peace and Unity are examples of actions that took place today involving millions of individuals.
I sent a message to fellow peace-seekers all over the world encouraging them to meet more often: “Meeting once a year to celebrate peace is good, but meeting every month is better!!! Meeting once a month to walk in silence for peace creates a strong group of Peace Builders that will plan and implement many peace initiatives. Initiate a monthly Silent Peace Walk where you live. The Peace Walk will be the beginning of your peace movement.”
I wrapped up my day watching “You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train,” a tribute to Howard Zinn, a great man who dedicated himself to promote justice and peace, and was not afraid to speak truth to power. He is an example of courage and an inspiration to me.
Like so many people in the world, I want the end of violence, both direct and indirect. I wish we stop fighting, hurting and killing one another. I wish we use our creative energy to put an end to poverty. We can do it! We have more than enough resources to achieve peace. We just need to organize ourselves in a new way and everyone will be able to have the necessary to live with dignity, and this will bring an atmosphere of tranquility to the entire world.
I am happy that the Forces of the Universe brought me to this place where I feel compassion for the oppressed, the exploited and the downtrodden, and compelled to help create a more just and peaceful world for all.
I know that what I do is not much, but today I am happy for the little I have done… I am happy that I have done something.
So, here are my wishes on this Day of Peace:
May we, one day soon, wake up from the sleepwalking state we find ourselves immersed in, and realize that we have all that is necessary to manifest Heaven right here on Earth.
May we realize that we can create a world where everyone can be loved and nurtured to give his or her best contribution to make everyone else’s lives better.
May my sons, one day, live in a more just, less violent and more peaceful world, and may they be able to say that their father did something to make the world a better place.
Justice! Peace! Unity!
