Petition to End War

We, the people of the world, come together to tell the leaders of all countries that war on this planet must come to an end. If we are to survive as a species, we must stop wasting our limited reserves on killing one another and use them for our common survival. For far, far to long, we have sacrificed the precious lives of our fathers and mothers, our daughters and sons on futile attempts to achieve peace and prosperity through death and destruction. The time has come for all responsible people to say enough is enough. The insanity must end. All of the inhabitants of this small planet now speak in unison and you have no choice but to listen. We can, we must and we will put a stop to the slaughter. If you cannot lead us to a world where we expend our wealth and energy on feeding, housing and educating the generations to come, you must step aside. We will have many challenges in the days and years that lay before us. We will not squander our opportunities in an endless sea of blood. This is the time for us to become worthy of the name homo sapiens. Both our intellect and our intuition tell us peace is the only way forward.

We call up on the leaders of all the countries of the world to end the violence and bloodshed. It is time for war to cease and for mankind to move forward into a new era of respect and cooperation.


Dear Fellow Human Being,

 

            One of the primary lessons we are taught in childhood is to share. As we become adults, we learn that sharing is not just about toys, it is about food and water, it is about culture and respect, it is about our mother earth. No matter how many would choose to divide us for their personal gain, we are one species, we are one family. It is time that as a species, we act as responsible adults not like misbehaving children. We must see that it is in the interest of each and every one of us to make this world a place where all are safe and secure, a place which is worthy of our children, and grandchildren and all of the generations to follow.

            We waste so much money on war and destruction. If we took all that money and effort and put it into food, housing, health care and education, we could transform our world from one of fear and sorrow into one of joy and thanksgiving. We have been told, in so many settings, it is us against them. This is a lie. When we destroy rather than build, it is us against ourselves. Peace and cooperation is the road to the future, if there is to be a future. It is time for the people to stand up and say “we will no longer tolerate this abomination”. It is time for all parties to lay down their arms. It is time for the people of the every country and every creed to come together and tell the war mongers to step aside and let a new era open for mankind. Let us give power to those who advance the cause of peace and prosperity not doom and destruction.

            We must do this. We can do this. We will do this. Please do three things to help make this possible:

 

1)     sign this petition http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/495764839

2)     forward this email to everyone you can

3)     wear red on October 9th

 

The petition will be presented to Kofi Annan, the Secretary General of the United Nations, and forwarded to leaders of all the countries of the world. We are using the worldwide web to make this a truly international event and it will only happen if you help. Please include your contacts in other countries. October 9th was chosen because it is the birthday of John Lennon who wrote the song “Imagine”. It also happens to be an especially opportune time in the political calendar of the United States.

            While gatherings and marches are encouraged in an effort to gain local media coverage, the wearing of red has deep significance. Red is the color which indicates “stop” and is the color of blood. Therefore, the statement being made is to “stop the bloodshed”. There are many situations where people may have to work and may not be able to carry written expressions of their feelings. In this way, everybody can participate and it will give us the opportunity to really see how very many of us there are who feel this way. Together we can change the world.
