I hope the best for you David Califa...
what you started will continue onwards
whenever people meet to talk peace
then ipeace will be there working the dream
guiding our steps along the way
and showing people a better way
than all this killing and hate.
You have paved our footpaths
firmly laid with slabs of love
and we will follow those paths
till war melts and peace reigns...
all because of you.

Like many I was sad to see the editor of ipeace resign and wondered what was happening to our site here. Then suddenly it was gone with only the message that the owner had taken it off line.
A hole appeared in my life. A space. A nothingness.
During the waiting silence of the Internet ether I wondered what ipeace means to you all.
It was started by our visionary leader who also took the initiative to light… Continue

This picture shows David & Liz (in the green waterproofs) handing the Cumbrian Miles to Silvia & Jon from the World March for Peace and Nonviolence (UK Base Camp Organisers) at the end of six days of Dusty Clogs.
I have just completed the most exhausting yet exhilarating week of my life. Dusty Clogs, based upon the Dusty Sneakers for Peace Programme in Canada, took off and assumed a life all of its own. Dusty Clogs was a… Continue

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in… Continue

I Think they Lied
I was brought up
to think warriors
were filled with
courage and bravery
instead what I see
or rows of graves,
a vanquished slavery
I was brought up
to respect fighters
up their lives
as a willing sacrifice
but instead I find
that they were

Unconditional Love Sometimes Hurts
I have decided to tell you the story before any rumour mill gets going. This story concerns my younger son and his choice of career. I think it has surprised my family that I can be calm and measured about this when they expected me to hit the roof…I think my younger son did as well.
Let’s start at the beginning with him leaving school two years ago after being a school prefect and a mentor figure to many younger people during his last… Continue

In answer to David's "I cry with you Abu al-Aish"
Three Fine Flames are Gone
These three bright flames are gone
whose fires once warmed our lives
this world just cannot weep enough
for all this pain within your heart,
nor can we fathom why they went
why were these flames snuffed out.
The inconsolable tears of a father
for all this pain and grief, he’s lost
the three most wonderful flames
that brightened… Continue

I am indebted to David Califa for many things including the whole notion of this ipeace
site and what it has come to mean to so many round the world. Over and above that I am also indebted for his reminding me of the need for balance in our views about Peace and world events.
To explain. On Thursday 15th January there was a story doing the rounds that Israel had locked up 700 Peace Protesters to silence the voice of protest. Of course there was outrage on many sites round the… Continue

Parviz Jahed is an Iranian Radio reporter with Radio Zamaneh and this was his translated blog for 5th October 2008
On one gloomy and cheerlessly wet autumn Sunday afternoon, on which it would be considered too much effort to go out. There are a few people who are concerned about the world and whose hearts pull for peace and humanity, arranged to gather in front of West Minster Abby to struggle for peace and to save the world from the evil of… Continue
