Hello Champions of peace,
Today I offer each of you a glimpse of what I think are the dreams of children and the world they would like to live in. It is based on a nine-year conversation I started the weekend following 9/11 and continue to explore.
I ask that each of you respond by painting an extraordinary picture of the world you think our children would love to grow-up in.
I can imagine a world where a child can walk out of their home and into a world of play, fun, love, safety and empowerment.
No matter who is in the streets outside the home, the other children will seek being nuturing, related and open to inclusion. No matter the particular game or moment, the new child or next child to appear will be welcomed and embraced to join in the fun.
Every child will see every other child and accept all the differences and all commonalities, but most importantly just accept each other with tolerance, respect and honor.
No child will experience bullying and humiliation, instead they will cherish love and extend love.
Can you remember your days a child. The friendships and love you extended to complete strangers just seeking to have the most fun you could in the moment .. then the next moment.
Would it be like a dream to be able to trust that whatever children your child met up with were beautiful, loving and nuturing little human beings with compassion and love.
Can you imagine being able to let your children out of your sight able to trust that each and every adult would be watching over your child as if it were there own?
And during their time to play or go to school or do their homework they would inquiry about the fate of those children less fortunate then themselves. Always looking to see how they could provide love, compassion, respect to those in need of just a kind word, or a piece of clothing or a warm meal.
What if all the adults took action based on the wonderful compassion expressed by children and gave their word to deliver the world based on a universal culture of peace that celebrated our differences as well as ALL THAT WE HAVE IN COMMON.
I can barely be with the joy and happiness created by seeing all children free, safe and strong. However, I am willing to give my life to creating that world for all children...Muslim, Hindu, Budhist, Christian, Jewish, Aetheist, Agnostic and any any all other faiths or non-faiths.
How great a world for children can I stand? I don't know, but I look forward to giving it a try.
Pleasssssssse, share your vision and dream of a world for children that moves, touches and inspires you.
Much love and peace,
Where Peace Lives - Remember, the Possibility of Peace Lives in YOU:)
