When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I'm just a peaceful person
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Inflation, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Too many people on the planet despite whatever culture and/or religion they belong to choose to believe that they are the "chosen ONES" and all other people and cultures are somehow less than
them and therefore look for excuses to rationalize
their prejudices instead of realizing that God created all the people all the same with the same potential to live on a clean and healthy planet where the bounty of the planet's resources are justly and fairly distributed by all the people through
global commerce and an understanding that all religions lead to God, that all humans have souls that are divine because that is how we were created and asked by God to honor that part of ourselves and others. Much more emphasis needs to be placed on creative endeavors and not on destructive ones. Never did I think in my lifetime after the VietNam war there would ever be
another war and sure enough, there have been more than one. What is it about human nature that out of the two sexes one is much more violent than the other? Why do small boys get "gifts" of toy guns as early as two years old? What are we preparing them for? I have a fantasy that through the use of the internet of starting a global club of
"NO MORE WAR" zealots and getting millions and millions of people to sign up so that one day we live like those ancient civilizations were peace was the norm and the killing of innocent beings (not just humans) is an antiquated practice.
Can we change the world?
More about me
I am just a regular person with a strong intolerance for violence, hatred, senseless destruction, abuse, and mismanaged or squandered resources just to name of few of the causes I pay attention to and am formulating a plan to work on these concerns.
