More peace

Another peace update.*

peace shirt

I purchased this shirt down in Key Largo, for many reasons, but the large peace sign caught my eye from across the store. Then I read the saying and loved it, so now it’s mine. Here are some of the sayings from the shirt (that we should all remember on a regular basis):

  • Be the change you want in the world
  • The real and lasting victories are those of peace and not war
  • When the power of love is greater than the love of power there will be peace
  • An eye for an eye just leaves the whole world blind
  • Live and let live
  • Peace is for all colors
  • Do our hearts not all beat the same…do we not bleed the same…do our souls not laugh and love and cry and dream the same? Peace is the way
  • Peace is not weakness. It is having the strength and widsom and vision to find real alternatives to violence
  • Peace is the ultimate creation of mankind
  • When we create a world that is full of love, understanding and tolerance for all people and living creatures then we will have fulfilled the sacred potential that lies within us and connects us all
  • A much greater moral strength is required to travel the path of peace and forgiveness than the path of violence
  • Believe in peace. Just imagine a world of tolerance and understanding. Where the money and resources now used to create war are used to create a world of peace & prosperity

 And another peace quote I stumbled upon, a few days after I bought the shirt:

“Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.” – Hafsat Abiola 

*I committed to using one little word – peace – as I move through 2009. This is a project inspired by Ali Edwards.
