What will you do to make the saying "May Peace Prevail On Earth and Let It Begin With Me" Come to fruition?

If keep repeating the phrase "May Peace Prevail on Earth and Let it Begin With Me" and ask ourselves the question "How can peace prevail?" It may lead us to formulate and develop an action plan to help bring peace into reality.

http://goingforaglobaltruce.com/ is what I created. I have sent it the The UN Secretary General and many presidents.

I have written a proposal for International Peace Every Day For Global Truce and Cease Fire. I got the idea for it after watching The TED TALK by Jeromy Gilley and reading the UN resolution declaring 9/21/12 as the international peace one day holiday. I realize that just declaring a global truce and a global cease fire will be a hard enough task to accomplish and it may be even harder to have it adhered to so that is why I added over 300 additional recommendations for the UN, the nations and the world to follow to help strengthen the peace. The first step must be for each of us just to want peace and then to think about how we really can get peace on Earth. I believe we have to want to give up war.

This is just some exerpts of what I wrote in my treaty proposal that I hope the UN will put for a vote 9/21/12:

“Global Truce Begins Now!”

“Global Cease Fire Begins Now!”

“A Global Pact Begins Now!”

“Humans shall not kill humans begins now!"

“Humans shall help humans begins now!”

“Negotiations For Peaceful Resolution To All Conflicts Begins now!”

“Nations and Peoples shall not engage in Elements of Crimes
as defined by the International Criminal Court.”

“Humans shall restore the environmental damage of past wars begins now!”

“Humans shall make comprehensive plans to live peacefully
and sustainably begins now.”

“Humans shall make a global confession to God and make amends
for past wrong-doings begins now”

Humans shall ask for forgiveness for past wrong-doings now!”

“Humans shall put people over profits begins now!”

    Feb 24 2012: A Siberian shaman I worked with once said, "Be ready to fight with yourself". I added, "Be ready to make peace". It's that simple.

    "Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God:" (Psalms 46:8-10 KJV).

      Feb 25 2012: If God fixes the worlds problems, explain the Crusades, please. Those guys were yelling a bunch of similar statements.

        Feb 25 2012: God does not claim to be the fixer of the world's problems. He claims to be the fixer of individual's problems. The Crusaders, and all like them, were, and are, misrepresenting God. Don't credit God with the folly of men marching under His banner. Knowing religion is not knowing God. Religion is a man-made activity and only occasionally bears the slightest resemblance to God's will for man as declared in the Holy Bible.

      Feb 25 2012: You may find that groups like this are mostly caricatures of you. You'll find others like you, but you may find not out of the woods yet. The more exclusive groups don't seem any better.
