Why War?

Why War?

“That since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed.”

The preamble to the UNESCO Charter adopted Nov. 16, 1945

The path to inner peace means changing the minds of men and women of the world. A mind that chooses peace as its goal is always “aware” of the thoughts contained within: Do they reflect peace or war? Here are some statements that could be used in “defense” of peace:

You and I are the same

I am you, and you are me

Whatever I see in you, also is in me

I am responsible for how I see and think

I choose to have an open mind

I refuse prejudice wherever it dwells

I exclude no one from my love

This world is an illusion but love is real

Love is all there is

We are One Humanity

I belong to all Religions and Faiths that honor God/ Allah/Yahweh/Creator

What are other statements in “defense” of Peace? Please post them here.
