I wrote a novel with the struggle toward Peace as the central theme.
I facilitate discussions, on Book Island in Second Life, called Global Peace Chats.
The book and the discussions find folks “fighting” over Peace…
Tomorrow is the International Day of Peace. On September 21st, 2012 there will be a Global Truce Day.
Back in August, I wrote a post called, Global Peace ~ Can It Happen? I didn’t ask “How?” in that post but I did mention:
“Saying global peace is impossible depends on folks believing that ‘human nature’ includes an ineradicable desire to be selfish and contentious. Some people feel that ‘human nature’ is such that, given half a chance, any human will ‘naturally’ use violence to attain their ends.”
Do you believe that?
If yes, I’d ask you to go read that post (and, watch the impassioned video it contains); also, perhaps, grab a free copy of my novel…
One more thing you can do. Yesterday saw the beginning of the Social Good Summit, which will continue through the 22nd. Here’s their blurb:
“Mashable, 92nd Street Y, and the United Nations Foundation present the second annual Social Good Summit. Held during UN week, the Summit is where big ideas meet new media to create innovative solutions.
“The Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders to discuss a big idea: the power of innovative thinking and technology to solve our greatest challenges. It ignites conversations between a live audience in New York City and thousands around the world participating via Livestream. Each day, we will have sessions running from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. [Eastern Time, USA]”
Oh! There are also Special Documents and Web Resources available.
