The video at left was created
by Dario Boente, an
Argentinean pianist/composer and music producer living in
New York. He performs in the video along with his band, Huge
in Japan. While a bit edgier
than the videos normally featured
at Peace Please, it features
a strong message of basic human awareness that
we felt was important. In
these times of nation
attacking nation, people attacking people, it's critical that we all remember that no one's life
is inherently worth more than
any one else's - at our core we are all humans.
Iraq: more than 650,000 civilians
and over 4,499 Coalition soldiers - dead from war. Darfur: over 400,000 people, dead. Israel and Palestine: over 5,400 people since 2000. The Congo: 3,000,000 since 1998. Pakistan.Chechnya. Afghanistan.
New York. Sri Lanka. Lebanon. Our Sons and Daughters. Husbands and Wives. Sisters and Brothers. Parents and Friends. It's enough already. All you "leaders" out there, listen. We - the people - want peace, please. NOW!
The visual above 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!
