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, Human Rights, Other
So what is it?
A convergence of issues that lead back to each persons desire and ability to find peace within and share this in unity with all creation
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Poverty of body, mind and spirit are the chief obstacles toward peace. These obstacles in one way or another are part of each one of us, rich and poor, and very few have the wisdom to understand the transitory nature of life .All of creation is one. We all need to be stewards of love and service which alone brings all great joy and fulfillment. This fraternal spirit will unite the rich and richly blessed with the truly poor in cultivating oneness and stimulate personal creativity in all making world peace possible. With patience and personal awareness humanity can be reborn as each one of us is awakened to the truth and goodness within.
Can we change the world?
More about me
We, The Martins, (www.FreedomBellsConnection.com) have been presenting musical programs with voices, instruments and bells for over 20 years. Making the world a better place for their four children and four grandchildren was one motivation for the establishment (4/02/09) of their non profit, the "Doug and Martha Martin Peace Bell Foundation"....www.MartinPeaceBellFoundation.org.
They have the good fortune of immediately creating "Peace Bells Along the Hudson." This ringing for Peace monthly from June to October coincides with the 400th Anniversary of the Hudson River. The Foundation hopes to make "Peace Bells Along the Hudson" an annual event and a launching pad for ringing bells for Peace ( A Billion Bells) world wide. Billion Bells has combined the themes of the 2008 Olympic Games the 2008 International Handbell Festival, "One World ,One Dream" & "Ring In Unity" respectively as a continuation of humanities quest for Unity. The Ringing of Bells historically have had a personal and community relationship which we have now taken and extended. Chime in with us to ring daily and monthly reminding us that "Peace Begins Within" and increasing our understanding that "We Are all United. " PEACE!
