When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom, Other
So what is it?
respecting the rights of the indigenous worldwide...LGBT rights
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Those who have are wanting and getting more. Those who do not have are getting less and less of the pie. This is not the natural order. Balance will come.
Can we change the world?
More about me
Black Elk, Oglala Lakota & Spiritual Leader (1863 - 1950):
The True Peace
The first peace, which is the most important,
is that which comes within the souls of people
when they realize their relationship,
their oneness, with the universe and all its powers,
and when they realize that at the center
of the universe dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit),
and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.
This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this.
The second peace is that which is made between two individuals,
and the third is that which is made between two nations.
But above all you should understand that there can never
be peace between nations until there is known that true peace,
which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.

good morning Andrew,
black Elks book has always had a special place in my heart. I have my own book now that explains the American culture of privilege, hoarding, and military domination from the historical/cultural point of view following our language back to the Germanic vikings that brought it to Britain after 425AD and then to this continent 1000 years later. then when this continent was taken from shore to shore we started out again across the seas and took Cuba, Phillipines, Puerto Rico, Guam and on and on ...... if you are interested in anymore of the story please visit my website thistribeofmine.com
hey Andrew.. how are you??
thank you for adding me as friend...
and i read what you wrote above.. its very fantastic and i liked the last sentence in you're words..
"there can never be peace between nations until there is known that true peace, which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men."
I agree with you Andrew with a new administration and an agenda for change has been voted in the doorways to profound change are within our reach but we must use our minds and coices to make sure it goes that way.
