I’d like you to join me, in starting with this pledge to allegiance for peace:
I promise, from this day on, to try to contribute to peace on this planet.
I choose to live my life in a peaceful way, taking responsibility for my choices, and contributing to the cause of peace in any way I can.
I choose to see people’s needs and feelings, and to use language that contributes to life, rather than creating enemy images or dehumanising my brothers and sisters.
I do this because I know the huge impact just one (seemingly) small person like me, can have on other peoples’ lives.
When I think of all the people I will meet during my lifetime, I believe that if just a handful are touched by my peaceful ways, then I will have helped to contribute to a better life for those in the future, and I will know that mine was a life well-lived.
I want to stand for something. I want to stand for peace.
Maybe if enough of us say this and act upon it, maybe one day we will have world peace.
Please share if you believe in this, too.
