If you can give a TED talk what would you discuss? You may chose to reply about any topic.

Many of us have valuable pearls of wisdom we can share with the world and never get a chance.

Please feel free to consider imagining this as a written TED stage and respond as if you were actually giving a short TED talk.

This is my talk: I am applying to speak at TED 2013 about my efforts to build upon Jeremy Gilley's International Peace One Day UN Resolution (A Res 55/282). I have actually proposed to the United Nations that an International Peace EVERY Day Treaty For Global Truce and Global Cease Fire be submitted to all nations for them to review and sign. I call for all 192 world leaders to come together in the United Nations on 9/21/12 to sign the treaty. They are invited to raise their right hand and in unison say "Global Truce Starts Now! Global Cease Fire Starts Now! May Peace Prevail on Earth and Let It Begin With Me! Then all 192 world leaders are invited to simultaneously issue cease fire orders to their military commanders. I am inviting religious, educational and informal leaders to take part also!

I have already written to many world leaders and submitted my idea to them. I have submitted this proposal to the UN Secretary General. I have requested to meet him and asked if I may speak about this idea to the entire UN General Assembly and the entire UN Security Council.

I am inviting all humanity to help make this idea viral. I believe we can create peace. I had to imagine peace and conceptualize backward from the premise that peace is possible. I then reverse engineered. I asked myself what would we need to do to get a global truce and a global cease fire put into place and adhered to.

I wrote up a 200 page proposal containing over 500 ideas on www.goingforaglobaltruce.com This is a never ending project that we have to work on 24/7/365. It will take all of humanity's brilliance to figure out the solution to this problem. It won't be easy but nothing worth while is. I challenge humanity to end all war! May peace Prevail on Earth!
