even the term 'assail' can have a positive connotation-'to make a resolute start on (a task)'. let's hope the oppressive regimes will begin to assail their people with resolute good-heartedness!

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.

Mandela has always been a source of inspiration and hope for me. I cried when I heard the news of his passing, but now he can finally rest. We love you Madiba... all your Rainbow people love you. xxoo

Peace a path, violence, a direction, peace is illusional, it's preferred over violence, which is delusional; peacing pays only much less than warring- no profit, pleasure in destruction or murder :)

What is real in this world and what is not may just be a matter of perspective. However I believe it is important to be firmly grounded in this reality and to do no harm. We are not alone.

Cow-Boy says Peace comes out from the Barrel of a Gun, wrong, wrong & wrong while Peace is happiness and progress between Life and Death as Nature/God/Allah has Gifted, Peace is by Truth & Respect!

Madiba, we could never forget you. By your selfless example you have shown us what we can do if we work together for good. So great was the grace you had; you'll be sorely missed!

Can we learn to live and let live, respect our differences and celebrate our similarities? We are all connected to each other and share this planet. I support the peaceful protesters.

Peaceful relationships recognize we are all one. When we harm others, we harm ourselves. There is no higher truth. Thank you all for your service to humanity.

I am so glad that I am able to teach my 4 year old daughter the lessons Madiba taught us. What a wonderful way of learning what it means to forgive, to accept and love each other.

Every person who claims an interest in human rights must concern herself with equity to its fullest extent, and not passively label this idea as "idealistic." Only then can we truly move forward.

I met with a number of Israeli and Palestinian peace groups back in 2005 and since then I have shared their work with thousands of Americans who are largely unaware of peace organizations there.
