30 Days of Peace. 20

Leaders also need to believe in peace.

I look at current world leaders and certainly many of our current politicians running for office. They all try to stand tough. Prove that they would be more willing bomb someone or go to war.

I am not naive. I understand that there are times where you need to defend yourself. I would, however, like a leader who also shared some principles of peace.

  • A leader willing to try to resolve conflicts  equitably and without violence;
  • A leader wanting to lead country where Security is based on meeting human needs, preserving the environment and ensuring the rights of future generations;
  • A country where Human dignity is respected and human rights are universally upheld and advanced.
  • A leader willing to educate and advocate for peace and a world free of nuclear weapons, and to empower  other peace leaders.

There will be many people who tell me that it is not possible. But why not try?

Start at your local level. Build from there.
