This is something that we 'imported' from facebook.

1. Write a "25 random things about me" and post it as a blog.

2. Share it with ALL your friends on iPeace (share button on bottom left >> More Options>>Share with friends)

3. We get to know each other better

We are almost 17000 and we come from 180 different countries and cultures. This can be exciting.


here's mine:


1. I used to have hair

2. There's someone thin living inside me

3. I lost about 1000 Kg during my life, and I gained about 100 Kg more

4. I don't throw old cloths that no longer fit – I tell them: "Wait, I am coming back"

5. I served in the army and hated it (but everyone does)

6. I was a really lousy student and was kicked out of school twice.

7. I got an MBA (and a really good one). I think that MBAs are useless

8. I used to trade bonds, stocks and other financial instruments when Wall Street was still fun

9. I retired 12 years ago

10. I lived in Israel, France, USA, UK and Japan (I am a sushi snob)

11. I visited about 60 other countries

12. I am dying to go to Tibet (but I don't think that I'm very welcome there at the moment)

13. My best friend is Eli Sachs and we've been friends for 40 years



14. I have 2 sons, Joel and Jono, and I love them more with every day that passes – They must have great genes.

15. I love myself, and feel sorry for people who don't love themselves.

16. I love golf and I used to be the only golf writer in Israel



17. I love music but I can't sing and I can't play any instrument which is killing me

18. I am a borderline autistic with a slight dyslexia and certified ADD

19. I live by myself (and I'm loving it)

20. I never felt loneliness, but I know that there aren't many worse feelings than being lonely.

21. I am more lucky than clever

22. I have addictive personality

23. I love cooking (and eating – you probably figured that out) I can eat Chinese food every day

24. I started iPeace and I love it

25. I WILL see peace in my lifetime

26. I believe that FEAR is the root of all evil



I have about 100 more..but my dream about peace is this:

I can tell you about the first things that come to my mind when I close my eyes and think of peace. I see no more wars. I see a time when my grandchildren don't have to spend 3 years of their lives in the army. I see equality and respect between peoples and nations. I see my Arab friends come to visit me at home, I see us going to the beach together. I see myself hanging out with my Lebanese friends in Beirut. But most of all, I see myself being able to get in the car with my dad (who is 87 years old) and 2 sons, and drive to Baghdad, Iraq, through Jordan or Syria. In Baghdad he takes us to the house he was born in, and to all the places he told us so many stories about. There, we close a circle.
These dreams might sound trivial to many, but these simple acts have been denied of so many people in the Middle East.

Just Peace by rose

thanks for starting I peace- here's the key- get Israeli citizens to convince conservative American Jews (and their allies) that using our taxdollars to fund weapons for Israel does not buy security for Israel -as long as America keeps funding weapons, Israel will not be safe or secure

Wall Street seems a surprising background for a man of your peaceful vision...for the love of making /having money does seem to play a big part in the constant competative strife, as well as the wars in the world.
Would you like the young ( and very handsome i should add) man who was you, if you met him now?
Thankyou for sharing those things about yourself.....I admit i am greedy though, not for THINGS but i want to know more.........but its good i have to learn to be restrained....be a respectable old lady lol. tyxxxxxxxx

Its nice idea to post random thoughts about your self.

Its revealing and good for self assessment, if one is honest to oneself.

I would post mine few days later after thinking it over...It would be fun...

Born in Africa and African, I learned Western culture at school.

We learned North history, culture and geography to what makes us really another cohabitation us.

Otherwise, I will be an African to a natural living by hunting, fishing and gathering. We will say that every civilization has happened, but the African is that I am more committed to the earth or of nature.

Today, I live on the Internet (network) and satellite TV. I'm from a school engineer. Yes, this Western civilization is now universale. And information is key to the world.

The world grew and the borders disappear.

COMPAORE.
