first I'd like to than rose for the beautiful logo.

the idea for this group sprung to my mind after I receive a message from Mohamad sh.

he wrote:

Dear everyone,

As you all see my list, i have a 120 friends, part of them palestinian, others from israel and also some from other arab countries and others like USA , EU, and more, i would like to ask a sensitive question to my friends from israel, and also other are welcome to answer it: everyone of us here talking peace, and about peace, and sounds for me life on this is is so great and lovely, seems no hatred and racism, no occupation and war, from big part of the comments i read mostly we say: we want peace, and here is my question: WHEN WE SAY PEACE, WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THIS NICE WORD, WHAT KIND OF PEACE WE WANT, WHERE COULD BE OUR LIMITES, BORDERS AND WHAT CAN WE GIVE TO MAKE PEACE REAL, LOTS OF QUESTIONS THAT FOR SURE NEED A DEEP THINKING TO SATISFY OUR NEEDS.
THANKS

So I answered:

That a really good question. I thank you for it, Mohamad. Peace means a great deal of different things to many people. It is a very personal question. I can tell you about the first things that come to my mind when I close my eyes and think of peace. I see no more wars. I see a time when my grandchildren don't have to spend 3 years of their lives in the army. I see equality and respect between peoples and nations. I see my Arab friends come to visit me at home, I see us going to the beach together. I see myself hanging out with my Lebanese friends in Beirut. But most of all, I see myself being able to get in the car with my dad (who is 87 years old) and 2 sons, and drive to Baghdad, Iraq, through Jordan or Syria. In Baghdad he takes us to the house he was born in, and to all the places he told us so many stories about. There, we close a circle.
These dreams might sound trivial to many, but these simple acts have been denied of so many people in the Middle East.

What would I give for REAL peace? Almost everything.


Then I thought, why limit it to Mohamad's friends. It's an important question. Why not open it up for everybody in iPeace?

Last summer I attended a lecture by Arun Gandhi (grandson of Mahatma Gandhi) & Mairead Corrigan Maguire (Nobel Peace Prize winner) in the Scottish Parliament, here in the historic & beautiful city of Edinburgh.

Mairead spoke of nurturing & cultivating love & peace within yourself, and then sharing it. Arun quoted his Grandfather who spoke of the seed of peace. If this seed is kept in a box it will wither & die. However, if the seed is exposed to the elements it will grow & flourish!

The message is clear, share your peace & let it grow & flourish.

And, with this in mind, please embrace the philosophy behind this movement and share your passion for peace by reaching out and inviting your friends.

Las estrellas, como un eco celestial
El tiempo ahorrado
Toda la magia
Un encanto que me lleva la poesía
En el resplandor de los cristales
En la canción del ruiseñor
La belleza de una flor sencilla
Siento que este amor inmenso
¿Dónde está esa luz de la estrella?
Que una vez brilló en Belén ..
¿Por qué olvidar ese amor?
El deseo no es más que una flor
Más deseo de conocer a alguien
que habla de amor
¿Quién tiene la esperanza
Crea en Santa Claus
Debido a que el sueño no ha terminado
Todavía es Navidad!
¡Feliz Navidad
Clicia Pavan
..........
The stars, like a heavenly echo
The time saved
All the magic
A charm that wears me poetry
In the glow of crystals
In the song of the nightingale
The beauty of a simple flower
I feel this immense love
Where is that star light?
That once shone in Bethlehem ..
Why forget such love?
Desire nothing more than a flower
More desire to meet someone
that speaks of love
Who has hope
Believe in Santa Claus
Because the dream is not over
It's still Christmas!
Merry Christmas
Clicia Pavan

Nas estrelas, como um eco celeste
o tempo guardou
Toda a mágia
Um encanto que me veste de poesia
No brilho dos cristais 
No canto do rouxinol
Na beleza de uma simples flor
Sinto esse imenso amor
Cadê aquela estrela de luz ??
Que um dia brilhou em Belém...
Porque esquecemos tão grande amor ?
Não desejo mais do que uma flor
Mais desejo encontrar alguem
que fale  de amor
Que tenha esperança que
Acredite em Papai Noel
Pois o sonho não acabou...
Ainda é Natal!
Feliz Natal

 Are you ready to show your face for peace?
 

Say YES to peace within yourself.

Showing face is a first step in a peaceful future. To make this process successful it is inevitable that each of us begins to create peace in the own heart. Let’s start to take responsibility for our own thoughts, feelings and actions and we will find more and more peace in the world. 
For our next campaign we need 10.000 people who show face for peace. Help us to realize this vision. 
Upload your photo on www.myfaceforpeace.org and share it with your friends.
 
Are you ready to show your face for peace?
