How I did it: Thought about it a lot. Each time I looked at my list and saw it on there I thought of ways I could incorporate Peace in my life on a regular basis. I spoke about the day to a lot of people in my life allowing many others to know about it too and to create conversations around Peace and its meaning. Read how I did it… 5 years ago
In the secret of my heart I am in perpetual quarrel with God that He should allow such things [as the war] to go on. My non-violence seems almost impotent. But the answer comes at the end of the daily quarrel that neither God nor non-violence is impotent. Impotence is in men. I must try on without losing faith even though I may break in the attempt. Mahatma Gandhi 5 years ago
“I would say that I’m a nonviolent soldier. In place of weapons of violence, you have to use your mind, your heart, your sense of humor, every faculty available to you…because no one has the right to take the life of another human being.” Joan Baez 5 years ago

I heard mention of this day on the radio yesterday – I was a bit shocked to hear it as I haven’t heard of it much. I am still very sick so I’ll continue my peaceful restfulness that I’ve been doing for the past four days. 5 years ago

in wearing blue on Fridays. It is a continual reminder for me to focus on praying and working for peace, while supporting our troops. It is an outward sign of an ongoing process. Hopefully, it will be a reminder others. 5 years ago

I received this e-mail today.
Very soon, you will see a grea t many people wearing blue every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the ‘silent majority’ We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing.
Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the v ast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday—and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar, will wear something blue.
By word of mouth, press, TV—let’s make the United States on every Friday a sea of blue much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before t he USA is covered in BLUE and it will let our troops know the once ‘silent’ majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.
The first thing a soldier says when asked ‘What can we do to make things better for you?’ is ..’We need your support and your prayers.’ Let’s get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something blue every Friday. 5 years ago

Some more focused activities for September to celebrate the International Day of Peace (September 21)...
I have ordered and look forward to reading The Essential Gandhi: An Anthology of His Writings on His Life, Work and Ideas. And I am particularly excited about receiving Yellow Doors: Poems, by one of our own international peace advocates, Ruth G!
For my personal peace development, I am trying to alter some of my own insecure, self-promoting behaviors. Also, I am working to be more productive for creating an environment of peace in my home.

There never was a good war or a bad peace. Benjamin Franklin 6 years ago
Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.

One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means.

I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for oneself, one’s own family or nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace.

is hard work. It is so easy to just give into extreme emotion, but to actually stand back during trying times and attempt to be consciously peaceful is a lot harder work… 6 years ago
