Renew your vision of peace
What I see everywhere in this world
Imagine a World at Peace
Where governments respect the rights
of all their citizens
and settle disputes by the rule of law
for the common good.
Where all people have food, shelter,
and access to medical care,
and children are born into and raised
by healthy families and communities.
Where literacy and education for all
are accomplished facts.
Where economic practices create well being
for all stakeholders,
including communities and the environment.
Where beauty, the arts, and media
inspire the best in people.
Where the benefits of science and technology
enhance all circles of life.
Where tolerance and appreciation
of diverse religious beliefs are the rule,
spiritual practice is encouraged,
and reverence for life fostered.
Where the earth
in all her natural beauty is treasured
and its resources utilized sustainably,
for this and future generations.
This is a World at PEACE…
You are a Pathway to Peace.
