Please read regarding a Moment of Silence or Prayer on December 1st.
I was not clear about time...hope I clear it up below.
Take a moment in your life and at sundown on December 1st, 2006, say a prayer or hold a moment of silence to encourage peace and unity with all people, but especially for peace among westerners and arabs during this time which is full of misunderstanding, bigotry, myths and preconceived notions regarding the cultures of each.
Please hold the moment of silence or prayer at sundown wherever you live. I like the idea that the event will be going on all day continuously rather than everyone holding it at the same time. Sunsets can be very moving and inspirational no matter where you are.
Welcome to Coming Together - Westerners and Arabs. This group was created in the hopes of providing a place for everyone to learn about each other. Hopefully myths will be dispelled, understanding promoted and friendships created.
