Thank you for your comment, and for joining this group.  The leaders of your country were likely put under great pressure from the U.S. to join in support of the Occupation of Iraq.

Our efforts to stop the Occupation of Iraq, and to cease the escalation of intervention in Afghanistan will have to continue well after the U.S. election. 

Welcome!

Thank you for inviting me to the group. Us danes used to be a very peacefull nation (- well, I am not talking about the vikings). But this has changed since Iraq. The danish gouverment decided jo join the war, and for the first time start a war together with the americans. Furthermore it was decided on a very small democratic base, and the other parties was against the war. I was partipitating in a demonstion against that step before the war. And I will like to keep fighting, so I am glad to join this group.

Hi Jerry, glad you're here.

Our kids get to a certain age and they do what they're going to do, which may or may not be what we envisioned for them.

Many veterans return as peace activists and perhaps your son will be in that category. 

Thanks for joining.

Thanks for joining us.

No politician from either party is going to end this war.

It's up to us to do it. When enough of us resolve to roll up our sleeves and do the hard work and organization that is required, we can end it. I think that America is mesmerized by this presidential election circus, thinking that it is going to bring about some sort of resolution. It's not. The Democrat led congress just funded the war 6 months into the next president's term. It's time for the ordinary citizens in this country to take matters into their own hands.

What can I say. I'm an artist that has been against every war in my lifetime. I'm also against the ones before I was born and the ones that will come after I'm dead!

I'm a veteran of a thousand peace marches and in the cruelest twist my oldest son decided to become an officer in the US navy. He just returned from a tour in the gulf. I now have that much more reason to be against this war, even though I was already against it before the first boot hit the ground...

Thank you Erin, for inviting me.
I am South African, now living in Portugal. I grew up under the apartheid regime, which gave me a passionate belief in justice and peace.
Right now I'm focused on China and the Olympic Games.
I am deeply concerned about the situation in Tibet, and in Burma, and am doing all I can for the Save Darfur campaign.
My other overriding concern is to see the end of the evil dictator Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe, and to hope that that poor battered country can return to peace and stability.

I know there are many other important causes, but these are the ones I'm concentrating on at present.

I will read posts first before I jump into any threads, happy to meet all of you.

Peace is Possible
7 years ago

I used to think peace meant end of war. I worked toward that goal long ago, and still do. But I now work as well toward a peace that can truly manifest, because it's based on individuals. Personal peace, with or without war. Simple, real.

Glad to have found this group and thanks to who invited me. I forgot!

Read blog on my profile page if you want, called "Hippies, Freaks and Making Peace" about my own little life story. One question they ask here on our profiles is "say something about you that is wild" (something like that). For me only one answer: Being Alive. What is wilder than this?!

Enjoy.

Hi, my name is Elizabeth and i am from Ireland. I am a yogi, pagan, bohemian, hippy type (a bit of a spiritual/political patchwork quilt)  Thought it was about time i made my presence known cos' i am not usuallly so backward. Obviously Ireland has had an uphill struggle where peace is concerned but in recent years I think we have proven that it is far from impossible which is why i respect optimism so much. Too many people behave as though the world is beyond repair! I dont believe that and judging by your group I am not alone.

Thank you Erin for the compliments. I love sharing with you one more poem that I wrote a few years back. Why the world so weary of hate, Be it in the name of religion, Be it in the name of a country or region, Be it in the name of language, caste and creed? We breath the same air, We come out of the same mother earth, We go back to the same mother earth, We come and go as we breath in and out. Why not we love each other, as we love the fresh air, that we breathe in and out, without which we shall gasp for life? Why should not we belong to each other, As we come from the same mother earth, And go back to the same mother earth, Lighted and warmed up by the same Sun, Which rise and set for us to believe its existence? Let us all learn the art of living, To whither away the weariness, Convert haste into a heap of love, To rest on each other’s laptop, Feeling a sense of belonging to each other, Which we hitherto longed for and eluded us.

My name is R. Ramachandran Nair and I live now at Trivandrum, Kerala State, India. I have two grown up and well settled children and through them four grandchildren. I am a lawyer by education but for decades worked as a Management Executive / Administrator for prestigious Medical Institutes and Hospitals in India. I am influenced by Mahatma Gandhi and his contemporaries like J. C. Kumarappa. I am a Peace Activist right from my teenage. I wish to live long to see peace in this world. Following poem of mine published in my book "DOVE OF PEACE" will speak for itself. I wish I lived long I wish I lived long, to see peace in the world, already weary of hate and wars, blown hot and cold by seasonal wind. I wish to live not to see wars, but the warmthness of love and affection, mankind always longed for to live long, before the death knocked at one’s doorstep. I wish to live not to get wounded, but to wind up my life after living to its full length, fulfilling my worldly obligations as a whole, to leave behind for children a world worth living. I wish to live a life worth living, not in hospital beds but happy homes, with kith and kin around, dancing with joy as life gets unwounded. Will the world leaders help me, and the mankind as a whole, to live in a world of wonders, and not wars weary hell I abhor? I love to learn the art of living, and not the art of dying, to make this world worth living, and help the mortal towards the exit for immortality.

Self Introduction - DAN 1
7 years ago

My gratitude to Erin for inviting me to the Peace Activists Center. It is an honor to be a member and in association with all of you.

I am a male, 62 year old Narbarian "wannabe" that lives peacefully and becomes "active" occasionally in the American political scene, reaching out to "kindred Spirits" and signing petitions here at Care 2. This is called "working within" the Mother Culture, as opposed to "working without", where I concentrate on building a New and Better Culture for Humanity and Mother Earth outside of, or on the edge of, mainstream society.

Currently, "working within" I am trying to influence the formation of the Third Party Coalition. In an effort to keep the platform simple and agreeable, the goal for the Third Party Coalition is merely to run Al Gore and RFK Jr for the presidency and vice-presidency in  2008. The idea being to deny victory to the corrupt Democrat/Republican Two Party Axis that has such a powerful grip on the lives of We The People of America.

This is an experiment that seeks to find out how ready We The People are to assume responsibility for their nation's government. Technology has brought us to where we can be the captains of our national destiny through active study and consideration of the issues of Our Land and then Voting Our Will for its benefit.

In order to help determine Our readiness, I have sent an invitation to 49 Third Parties of America, to form a coalition that will run Al Gore and RFK Jr. After two weeks from the initial sending, I have only received a reply from two parties. They are the Pot Party and the American Reform Party. Both have indicated support for the coalition idea.

I will come here as often as i can to read and learn from all of you. The wish of a beautiful day to all of you. Thank you again Erin.

Respectfully, DAN 1

I want to thank you Erin, for the invite into this great group. I joined care2 in 1996 or 97, but being so new to the computer world, I had no idea of everything that was actually here. So I lost interest and got into other things like hosting game tournaments and creating animations.

My other names are "WordWitch" and "WenchyWytch", and many call me "Witchypoo", (which is what I sign my work with).

I am looking forward to working as a group to get things done! If my health was better, I would be one of those people out there marching, but if I can do what I can from my computer and make a difference... then so be it.

Our world is in a big pickle, right now. So let's get busy!

Peace and Freedom,

Denise

All I seem to have read about this week is kids gunning down other kids, people being killed for standing up for themselves and troops who have lost their limbs as a result of an idiots paranoia being given less respect and care than a typist who strained her finger

Hope George and Tony sleep well at night - and John we need you more than ever

Thank you, Erin, for inviting me to this group. You, Archie,  and others like you, many of whom I see are members here,  have reawakened my faith in mankind. I cannot thank you all enough.

I was not yet born when John Lennon shared his wisdom with the world, but his message was so strong that it became his legacy. When I was young, and nieve, every time I heard his music, I felt that everything was going to be ok. How could they not be, with people like him around? But time, and the lessons of life and school, eventually led me to give up on the dream of peace. So, like many others, I rode on the bandwagon of life for many years, seeing the dream of peace as just that, nothing but a dream.  But always his words have brought tears to my eyes, and kept the hope fluttering in my heart of hearts. 

Now I know that peace has not failed. We have failed peace. And I know why. Now, it is the Star Spangled Banner that makes me cry.

I cannot go on playing the game, knowing what the future holds for our children if we do not change our perceptions. Knowing the role my country has played in the corruption of society around the world. Our country, my homeland. Some can cling to roots in other countries, giving them a margin of escapability, of comfort. I am a Native American. This is my only country, my only home, my reponsibility, my shame. 

My dearest hope, and greatest drive right now, is to put Dennis and Elizabeth Kucinich in the White house to lead our country, and the world by their example, so society can begin to change it's perceptions, it's path, and what the people see as possible. They have rekindled my hope for peace. 

They may say we are dreamers, but it is just another label, used to dismiss us. Here, we see that we are not alone. Here, you have gathered the tools, and the wisdom we need. Together, we will make Mr. Lennon's vision of peace a reality.

Being an Activist

To me, being an activist means taking action.  Doing something concrete.  That is why I started www.clickshopsupport.org where people can begin all their online shopping and have the merchant rebate up to 25% to nonprofits that support peace.  We are raising some big money for some big groups that have a lot of power to effect change.

Hi guys,

And thanks for joining us!

And thanks for bringing John Lennon back into focus. The intent of this group is to carry on John's vision for peace and to confront the problems facing our world today the way he would, with words, with music, and with action. And with love...

John Lennon did a lot more than just talk about peace and sing about peace. He was an activist. He lived for peace and he worked for peace and that's why he was monitored and harrassed by the FBI...

Here, we want to work for peace. And we want to do it with a good attitude and take time for music, art , poetry, and never lose our sense of humor. We're still small enough to know each other, and as we grow we all have an opportunity to make this group special.

Archie for the invite to peace activist center.. It's a very nice feeling to inspire one another to promote more peace in this world. Peace to all.

A song dedicate to the group.. ~Heal The World~

There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You’ll find theres no need to cry
In this place you’ll feel
There’s no hurt or sorrow

There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make a better place...

*Chorus

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough
For the living
Make a better place
For you and for me

If you want to know why
There’s a love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares for joyful giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel fear or dread
We stop existing and start living

Then it feels that always
Loves enough for us growing
So make a better world
Make a better world...

*Chorus


And the dream we were conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep
Strangling life, wound this earth, crucify its soul
Though its plain to see this world is heavenly
Be gods glow

We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart, I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords into plowshares

We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space to make a better place...

*Chorus (Repeat)

Lyrics:

All the weary mothers of the earth will finally rest
We will take their babies in our arms and do our best
When the sun is low upon the field
To love and music they will yield
And the weary mothers of the earth shall rest
And the farmer on his tractor and beside his plow
Will stand there in confusion as we wet his brow
With the tears of all the businessmen
Who see what they have done to him
And the weary farmers of the earth shall rest
And the aching workers of the world again shall sing
These words in mighty choruses to all will bring
"We shall no longer be the poor
For no one owns us anymore"
And the workers of the world again shall sing
And when the soldiers burn their uniforms in every land
The foxholes at the borders will be left unmanned
General, when you come for the review
The troops will have forgotten you
And the men and women of the earth shall rest

I would like to thank you all for having me here. 

I have loved John Lennon and the Beatles practically all of my life.  When I first began playing guitar, guess what music I started with?  ...THE BEATLES!

It was terrible what happened to him...Just imagine the amazing music he could have made...The talent that was lost.  The loving soul who lost his life.

May his Spirit Live Forever

PEACE!!

Hi everyone! I missed the hippie boat the first time...I was a bit too young. My parents refused to let me hitchhike to Woodstock at age six after seeing The Who on the Smother's Brothers. I guess I'm living my second hippie-hood. It is wonderful to find a group who believes in the same values they did in their youth. A rarity with "adults." I take pride in the sticker given to me by my teen-age son (Eric Cartman from South Park) proclaiming:

"You're all a bunch of filthy, tree-hugging hippies!!!!"

Thanks to Archie's invitation, I've joined this group and I'm glad to be a part of it.

I think that peace of mind is one of the most important things for a human being, that's what I try to keep everyday! And as long as we find our inner peace, we can spread it all over, or at least, we can help to stop spreadding violence.

I hope I can learn and to give a lot, thanks for letting me be a part of this group!

Dear Archie, Thank you for inviting me to the group. I see such beautiful people here and I hope that I will able to contribute the group. I am a firm believer of Peace and Justice for all. I am a member of ISM and recently I met few CPT members in West Bank. It was abond of mutual understanding as we all feel we need PEACE now!! Once again thank you. Peace Meenakshi

It seems like times change, but the issues don't. As I point out from time to time in my environmental group, we have to keep fighting the same battles over and over again. That can get to be disheartening until you accept the fact that it's just part of living. Is it disheartening to breathe or to sleep, or to make breakfast every morning and go to work?

It's what you have to do to survive.

Let's make this a gathering place for survivors.

Thanks for the invite!  Seems like another cool group, am not sure how you keep up so well!
Me- An old hippie chick protester from back in the late 60's.  An old friend of mine from those days actually 36 years ago when we first met was just here in Berkeley for a visit. We talked about some crazy days and his "underground publications"  WE were there for Vietnam and now again there is no better reason or time for a change that is needed!!!

Bush is nuts and so are his buds, It scares me to think that North Korea will be the next killing field

Let's stop them now before it's all too late!

Peace and Love, Rose

Hello everyone,

My name is Jeanete I am so honored to be part of this group. It has opened my eyes even farther. John Lennon was my mothers favorite. She is longer with me, but everytime I hear John sing, it brings back all the wonderful times we had together. I promise to be diligent in my efforts here and in all areas of supporting "whirled peas" LOL.

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.  Jeanete

I can see so many friends are here already...thanks for the invite.                               Like everyone here I am passionate about peace. This last 15 months have been the greatest challenge after my daughter was murdered by terrorists in the London Bombs. She was as great a peace lover as I have ever known. It is my privilege to continue her work and try to shine the light of peace into some of the darkest corners. Maybe I am a dreamer...       But I am not the only one. It is great to be here.

Linda,

Globalization is an interesting topic, especially as it relates to keeping or fostering peace among nations.  Thank you for those links. 

This is definately a topic for further discussion and inquiry.  I sense a new thread.....

Anonymous
8 years ago

Hi Everyone,

  Perhaps if I reword,rephrase,or reask my question we might receive more replies? I came across the word GLOBALIZATION recently.,so maybe the more appropriate question might be Are you all for Globalization,and what does it mean to you,and how have you been effected in your daily lives by Globalization.,and perhaps from here,we may address the question of how to stop terrorism?

 I have typed this in another forum,and will retype it.  

"Critics of Globalization forget that free trade fosters prosperity and know almost nothing about its most important benefits-its tendency to PREVENT WAR.  Quantitative studies have shown that trade fosters peace both directly,by reducing the risk of military conflict and indirectly,by promoting prosperity and democracy.

http://www.independent.org/publications/tir/article.asp?issueID=39&articleID=457

In Which countries are females put down the most? n which countries are Doctors,Scientists,and Educators NOT given their rights and tortured? What are their governments like? If this occurs to the people most educated,what would it be for their "uneducated.scholasticallywise."(but not by life-experience,for they have much more life experience than some of us in peaceful countries.)what would it be for them born in so-called caste systems? Which systems of government would give them more opportunities for education? 

While some people think of globalization as primarily a synonym for global business,it is much more than that.  The same forces that allow businesses to operate as if national borders did not exist,also allow social activists,labor organizers,journalists,academics,and many others to work on a global stage.  http://globalization.about.com/cs/whatisit/a/whatisit.htm and why is multi-cultural-education important? http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~jar/Multi.html  As I personally experienced it,Multicultural education both in national schools,and in  the home is GOOD.,it helps my children appreciate and understand other people and their culture,and hopefully,I wish,the next coming generations of children will grow with more peaceful intentions and goals.

Welcome to our group, Joseph!.

This group is only four days old. A lot of people have joined so far. They are really among the coolest and nicest people on care2, or anywhere. There is a wndow of opportunity here for everybody who is joining to jump in and set the stage for what is to come. Whatever you would like this group to be, here is your chance to make it real.

For everyone who has joined so far-- let's roll up our sleeves and work together to bring peace to the world we live in, all the countries we live in. As Marc Gartman pointed out this morning, it has to start within, and then you have to communicate it to the people closest to you, and then it can spread from one person to another throughout the world...

Is that a lot to hope for from a care2 group? Yeah...

But the opportunity is here. Jump in and make this group make a difference.

War is over.

If you want it.......

Thank you for the invitation, Debbie...I feel like I just fell back into the 60's in a wonderful way  - w/people who actually believe Peace is possible - Give peace a chance.. ..I so want to see it in my life time....I plan to live to 120 so there is time yet! First, Bush,et.al has to go...impeachment is preferable, so I'm banking on everyone voting on November 7th. I can not tell you how tired I am of neo-con propaganda, stupidity, and lies. What a wonderful group - I was meant to live in the late 60's cause I never left in view of my political beliefs...liberal, liberal, liberal and proud of it. And that's saying something in RR, TX. IMAGINE a world living in peace - first, we have to stop building WALLS...that's hard to imagine seeing how it's happening in my state right now.When I joined Care2, I was going to relax and be non-political, and now look at me, I'm ready to an activist - I just want peace to flow I've signed everything so far - I'm ready and willing!

if anyone is bored enough to want to know more about me visit my website: http://globalclimatechangeaction.org and sign the petition to mitigate climate change, or participate in the anti nuke poll..and read more about what concerns our small band of 63 globally active members.

or visit my list of life's missions @ http://www.43things.com/person/phronsbuddie

or visit my homepage here on Care2.

My belief that peace is possible in my lifetime is strong, so much so that i have the word emblazoned with stars and birds across my right breast... a permanent reminder to myself and to all who come close to me that in my embrace, you will feel peace

finally, a couple of urgent actions...

1. a new poll that will only be running for a short time, please add your vote ASAP. :

"Nuclear power;
Where do you stand?

For it
Against it
Undecided

http://www.smh.com.au/polls/national/form.html"

and 2. Channel Seven's 'Sunrise' currently have an online petition calling on the Federal Government to keep the solar energy rebate.

It's only active for three more weeks, then it will be presented to the Prime Minister and Environment Minister on air.

SO help spread the word!!

You can find the petition here:

Hi Friends,

Thanks for the invite, Archie...I wouldn't miss THIS party for anything!

I write letters to the editor of my small town rag and have been accused of being a Bush hater by the local republicans and the religious righteous. My next letter to them will have to set them straight. I don't hate Bush, I hate what he stands for...which would be WAR. I would like to help the prez out of his fog, though.  Oops, that's not peaceful, maybe an enema would be best.   Just joking, in my risque way.

Love & Peace,

Hi Archie
8 years ago
Thanks for the invite. I agree with Marc. People all over the world, from all walks of life are waking up to the fact war is not the answer. It is up to the people to promote peace, it is obvious that the US government has failed to provide it. They have done just the opposite.
Hi
8 years ago

Linda, Wolfgram, Brent, and Marc! Thanks for joining.

I think the question of how to defend against "terrorism" is a good one for this group to discuss. I could anticipate that defining that word might generate a long debate, too. I think that the experience of the US and Israel of going after "terrorists" with full military might has been proven to be both wrong and ineffective...

I agree with Marc that the tide is turning and the time is ripe for effective anti-war activism. Anyone on this planet with an ounce of common sense can see that events are spinning out of control. The time is right for some fresh thinking on these issues, and everyone's ideas will be welcome in this group.

8 years ago

Hi Archie and friends, thanks for the invite. I think peace is now a more realistic possibility then ever before. It is not anymore the choice between peace, or fighting, but the choice is now Peace, or Extinction. I hope people think before they let others make the choice for them.

Glad to be part of this group, in this time and this world, doing my part.

I feel that this administration is directly responsible for causing all the turmoil and killing in the Middle east! DOWN WITH BUSH AND HIS NEOCON CRONIES!

Thanks for joining. I just started this group a couple of hours ago. We all have an opportunity to make something out of it together...

Hi Archie!

Thankyou for the invite!  Since the first time I heard John Lennon's song Imagine, it has been my theme song, and I have the lyrics on my billboard here at Care2.

Together, we can create a peaceful world when we visualize it, believing & knowing the world "will live as One."

May Peace & Love fill each heart, Overflowing to fill the World...

I am interested in all peace related issues, but lately my main focus has been on military presence in the schools and counter-recruitment efforts.




Welcome to our group!

Introduce yourself, and say hi!

I started this group as a spinoff from my environmental activist group because we were dealing with anti-war issues a lot, but I wanted to give it more attention. Our John Lennon thread that Doris started resonated so strong with our members that I felt there was a need for a new group.

So welcome to our new group and let us know who you are!
