Imagine a peaceful world - Attracting Peace 2013

peace sign 2 fingers

Jeremy Gilley British actor and film maker became passionate about establishing one day of peace and non violence world wide. In 1999 he founded Peace One Day Foundation. In 2001 his tremendous efforts were rewarded, when United Nations established September 21 to be the first Day of Peace and Non-Violence. "through detailed analysis conducted with the support of McKinsey & Company, the Peace One Day 2012 report found that, across the world, approximately 280 million people  in 198 countries were aware of Peace One Day 2012 -4% of world's population. The report further estimates that approximately 2% of those people (5.6 milion) behaved more peacefully as a result. Peace One Day expects to double those figures in 2013, creating a solid foundation for informing 3 bilion people about Peace Day by 2016." (peaceoneday.org) Join us for the Attracting Peace 2013 program - the annual celebration of peace on Thursday, September 19 at 7 pm in the Stevenson & Hunt room, Central Library.

I saw it with my own eyes, and it's scary.

Very good and hot topic! In reality world lacking world. Living far away from wars, we think that the security. And just at that very moment the madness going on all over the planet. War and destruction. I saw it with my own eyes, and it's scary.

Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today... Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace... You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all the world... You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will live as one

I always imagine a peaceful

I always imagine a peaceful world but there are black sheep which block the road for a nice and bright world. Politics is the main culprit.
