As the end of this year approaches, I have made some time to reflect on what I would really like for 2009. Have you? We'll have a new president in a scant twenty-three days. My personal and professional lives grow apace. I wasn't surprised when the idea that snagged me was Peace. Then I received the text of this email:
Vote for Peace at Change.org and Help Spread the Word
The website Change.org is holding an online event through January 15, 2009 calling for the "Top 10 Ideas for America," which they will present to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day. Change.org says, "We will then build a national campaign to advance each idea in Congress, marshaling the resources of Change.org, MySpace, and our dozens of partner organizations and millions of combined members." Imagine our campaign with expanded support like that!
The idea to "Appoint Secretary of Peace in Department of Peace and Nonviolence" is currently in first place in the category "Other" and second place overall. We need your help to keep it there all the way through January 15. Visit the site today and vote for peace, then use their "Email a Friend" link to spread the word.
Peace is the only idea I've ever found that encompasses all good for all beings on this and every other planet. There is no common definition of peace. Instead, it means different things at different times to different people. True peace is a growing, dynamic way of being in the world wherein all are blessed.
Won't you add your voice to the rest of us at change.org and click your vote for peace?
