The visual at left shows photos of people of peace, or visual
expressions of peace which they created. These photos provide just a small capsule of the tens of millions
of people around the world raising their voices and being visible and vocal for peace. Please join in,
and do all you can in any way you can to move peace forward. The time is NOW.
Iraq: more than 650,000 civilians
and over 3,503 Coalition soldiers - dead from war. Darfur: over 400,000 people, dead. Israel and Palestine: over 5,000 people since 2000, hundreds more since July. The Congo: 3,000,000 since 1998. Chechnya. Afghanistan.
New York. Sri Lanka. Lebanon. Our Sons and Daughters. Husbands and Wives. Parents and Friends. It's enough already.
All you "leaders" out there, listen. We - the people - want peace, please. NOW!
The video above is by musical artist Kaleo. He says he was inspired to create
a song called BRING 'EM HOME "...after years of watching the war and its affect
on our collective society. It is Dedicated to All Soldiers, Families, and Friends.
I poured my heart, soul, and emotion into this creation so that others could heal."
The message of this song and video is important. The closing photo speaks
volumes. There are too many of us, humans of all kinds, dying from conflict
in Iraq, and in too many places around our world. We must make the madness stop.
