When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
Violence
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Other
More
Peace through nonviolence has not been made a top priority in our culture. We need to give people the skills they need to resolve their differences nonviolently; make nonviolence an operating principle in society.
Can we change the world?
Definitely
More about me
The father of two teenagers who wants to make sure they have a brighter future than what it looked like they were heading toward just a year ago. The Obama administration is certainly cause for hope, but we still need to roll up our sleeves, get active, and make things better. My focus on Change.org is reduction of violence, primarily through creating a U.S. Department of Peace with the Peace Alliance.
Promise to respect others and refrain from spamming?
Yes

On this day in 1776, our country's forefathers declared independence from the tyranny of the British monarchy and launched this shining example of democracy. However, somewhere along the way, the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" has morphed into a society based on violence and a winner-take-all mentality. The history of our democracy is filled with one tragic period of war followed by another, with all-to-brief interludes to reload. When school children are taught… Continue

Thank you for the friend invitation.

I have been a supporter of the Peace Alliance and Department of Peace ever since I first heard about it.

Namasté,

Jean
