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, Inflation, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom, Other
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
My Name is Serge Da Sylva I am from Montreal Canada.
My first language is French.
I think to want to change the world people must detach from their personal interests and really understand how their daily lives affect the lives of humanity and that starts with family societies and nations. Letting go of personal interests in exchange for global interests in turn uplifts your values and your global quality of life.
Great disparities between humans such as their exists today between the rich and the poor can not breed peace and happiness.
This of coarse must be based on a new type of education that is set on higher moral values. Where the culture of winning is less ingrained and the culture of deserving and of excelling is at the forefront. A culture of substance and of ideas rather then tv win it all shows. A culture of beauty rather then a culture of glamor because we want to put materialistic clichés on culture so we can have mindless consumers.. A culture of well being rather then one of power and glory. A culture of thought more then blind religious faith and prejudice a culture of mind openness curiosity and meditation. Rather then one of samurai's. soldiers And knights controlling the kingdoms. I hope that for 2008 humans will tune to their higher selves and declare the end to exploitation war domination and global world inequality. From the pentagon to Al Quaida
from the streets of NY city to the slums in Pakistan from the European bistros to the farmers in Asia the workforce in India Saudi Arabia. A new hope a new urge
And answer the Davos question.

Now people can blog and reach many people and every once of information truth and solidarity and demonstrations of public outcry helps end the war. We are becoming a transparent and also dangerous world. Peace makers and pacifists need to stay alert and keep fanning the flame… Continue
