It is the individual person who is alive--you. Create government to run for ALL the people to smooth the way. Educate children at an early age not just civics but what gov. is by using a dictionary.

Last time you came and preached to the choir. We in the peace camp love you all, but you must engage with the opponents of peace on both sides, settlers and jihadists.

The Elders is the most important group I believe has ever been formed. It is a reminder that the world must listen to wisdom if humanity is to heal its wounds and embrace a positive future.

Hungry, wounded and dispossessed children will not grow with peaceful ideas on their minds. PEACE needs to be understood by children as a source of security, love and nutrition.

Wonderful to see our wise Elders meet and act with communities in Palestine and Israel. I cannot think of another current example of the human rights abuses occuring in Palestine.

At this time of the year, it is particularily poignant that there is such pain and division in the place where Jesus was born. I hold all of the Palestinian and Israeli people in my prayers.

Our brothers and sisters in the Middle East have a choice to make. Live in peace or rest in peace. I believe they will follow the example of Isaac and Ishmael and forgive each other.

I know greatness when I see it and I clearly see it in the life of Nelson Mandela. His stand against apartheid made an incalculable difference not only in South Africa but throughout the world.

Grief can interrupt the abiity to build peaceful relationships. It can even obstruct the ability to see that possibility. Healing grief, then, is an integral part of the peacemaking process.

Mandela's ideal and that he was famously prepared to die for it should forever remain an inspiration to us to continue the fight against inequality and domination of any group of people over another.

Political economists, critical of capitalism exposed gross injustices caused by usurious banking and intentional obfuscation of money creation. Is serious research yielding alternatives to capitalism?

Honored Elders, Would you support and mentor new political leaders who share in the Ethics and Values of a Global Earth-centered movement? And would you be instrumental in seeding this movement?
