Hello Dear One , thanks for sending the link to the video "Earthlings", I just watched it and I am so deeply moved, I cried almost the whole time,
I really wish that all human beings would have the courage to see this, and wake up to the truth, and I truly believe that as long that we are the cause directly or indirectly off the sufferance of any living being we shall not be able to create Peace.
I have been a vegetarian and meditating oneness for almost 24 years and I am in very good health, I now commit to being a vegan as an action to further even more peace in the world.
I do hope friends all over the world can be inspired also to make a change in there daily habits so that we can create a better peaceful world for all.
The Logo ONE is a grassroots campaign and advocacy organization backed by more than 2 million people from around the world and every walk of life who are committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.
At ONE, we achieve change through advocacy. We hold world leaders accountable for the promises made to the poorest people, and we press these leaders to support better policies and more effective aid and trade reform. We also support greater democracy, accountability and transparency in developing countries so these resources can be effectively deployed.
Cofounded by Bono, Bobby Shriver and other campaigners, and supported by Bob Geldof and other high profile activists, ONE is nonpartisan and works with activists from the left, right and center to mobilize public opinion in support of effective, proven initiatives that are delivering results: protecting families from preventable diseases like AIDS and malaria, putting kids in school, providing economic opportunity and stabilizing communities. To help ensure the policies we advocate are effective, we seek advice from leading African anti-poverty campaigners and policy experts.
At ONE, we believe the fight against poverty is not about charity, but about justice and equality. We are honored to be part of a greater movement of people and organizations working to end poverty throughout the world.

If you look at the shared values of all religions (as reflected in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights) - it is never religion itself that is an obstacle to peace but how it is used for political purposes....:)
