To all whom it may concern,

Greetings,

 

Let us all do what it takes to create a lasting peace on Earth in our generation!  Let us be creative and do what no other generation of humans since civilization began have able to do.  Let us take all the actions needed to get the job done.  Let us create peace on Earth and let it begin with you and me! 

 

To do this I would like to suggest an annual Global Truce Peace One Day Summit to be held each year on the International Day Of Peace: The 21st day of September where all world leaders come personally to meet in a session at the United Nations Headquarters to discuss plans for achieving a lasting global truce.  Please help to get this idea implemented and made into a reality each year beginning 9/21/12.

 

At the same time a multitude of conferences may be set up in each country around the world on  September 21 of each year to discuss how we all can participate in the process to achieve a non violent global truce.

 

 

Please allow me to humbly remind you that there is a signed, unanimously ratified pact in effect between many nations called the Kellogg Briand Pact of 1928 outlawing war http://www.yale.edu/lawweb/avalon/imt/kbpact.htm which remains international law to this day.

 

There is a Treaty between the United States and other Powers providing for the renunciation of war as an instrument of national policy. By the President OF the United States Of America. A Proclamation:

Deeply sensible of their solemn duty to promote the welfare of mankind;

Persuaded that the time has, come when a frank renunciation of war as an instrument of na tional policy should be made to the end that the peaceful and friendly relations now existing between their peoples may be perpetuated;

Convinced that all changes in their relations with one another should be sought only by pacific means and be the result of a peaceful and orderly process, and that any signatory Power which shall hereafter seek to promote its ts national interests by resort to war a should be denied the benefits furnished by this Treaty;

Hopeful that, encouraged by their example, all the other nations of the world will join in this humane endeavor and by adhering to the present Treaty as soon as it comes into force bring their peoples within the scope of its beneficent provisions, thus uniting the civilized nations of the world in a common renunciation of war as an instrument of their national policy;

Have decided to conclude a Treaty and for that purpose….having communicated to one another their full powers found in good and due form have agreed upon the following articles:  

Article I: The High Contracting Parties solemly declare in the names of their respective peoples that they condemn recourse to war for the solution of international controversies and renounce it as an instrument of national policy in their relations to one another.

Article ll: The High Contracting Parties agree that the settlement or solution of all disputes or conflicts of whatever nature or of whatever origin they may be, which may arise among them shall never be sought except by pacific means.

By 1965 65 nations pledged to observe its provisions.

 The following is a link to The Kellogg-Briand Pact Documents:

http://avalon.law.yale.edu/subject_menus/kbmenu.asp 

 

This pact renounces war as an instrument of foreign policy.

Please see: http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/p/Kellogg-Briand%20Pact for more Information. The Kellogg-Briand Pact, also known as the Pact of Paris, was a treaty that attempted to outlaw war (46 Stat. 2343, T.S. No. 796, 94 L.N.T.S. 57). The treaty was drafted by France and the United States, and on August 27, 1928, was signed by fifteen nations. By 1933 sixty-five nations had pledged to observe its provisions. We may make an all out effort to get every nation to sign on to this and accept it universally.

 

This pact was signed after World War One in an effort to prevent humanity going through the horrors of war again after being devastated so much by the carnage of that war.  The pact called for all nations to settle their disputes in peaceful ways and not to engage in war.  As we know the pact was not adhered to and humanity has gone through the horrors of wars over and over again since 1928 that could have been avoided had the pact been adhered to by all nations. The death toll from wars in the 20th century was massive and unfortunate.  We must learn something from this and make changes in our behaviors and international relations among nations.

Linked below are documents showing the horrors of war in the 20th Century.  Let’s learn from their mistakes and change our ways before we get caught up in fighting much more horrific than what occurred in the 20th  Century as now we have much more advanced lethal technologies.

I believe we have another chance to “GET BACK TO THE PACT!” by all nations of the United Nations voting to unanimously commit to the pact and sign it anew.

 

If we do we can decrease the likelihood that we will get embroiled in many future wars and armed conflicts and decrease the likelihood of humanity going through World War III and WWIV.

 

Albert Einstein "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."

 

I request that a resolution be drafted and be submitted for vote by the general assembly of the United Nations calling for all nations to ratify the pact and adopt it as current international law by all nations on Earth. 

 

Mankind needs to take war off the table as a method of international relations.  I propose humanity take a period of one to three years to develop alternative strategies of how to get along peacefully and how to solve conflicts without war or force.

 

Hopefully by its 100 year anniversary in 2028 Humanity will have been able to have made progress and have the pact be complied with in reality not just written on paper and disregarded.

Please take the next nonviolent steps to help humanity to achieve a global truce.  You may consider petitioning your government to enter a resolution in the United Nations calling for all nations to vote to "Get Back To The Pact!" and recommit to its principles and work to add all of the nonviolent interventions needed to help humanity be able to achieve this outstanding goal in our time.

Humanity was on the right path in 1928 when all nations ratified the Kellogg Briand Pact but unfortunately we lost our way and got into World War 2 and all subsequent wars with the tragic loss of millions of lives needlessly and viciously.

 

Lets all rally to "Get Back To The Pact" before it is too late.  We can avoid World War 3 if humanity renounces war as a method of foreign policy of all nations and settles all disputes only through pacific means.  We have to ask ourselves over and over again if war is not an option how would we solve our problems and begin taking it from there.  Let’s go to court not to war, and settle our disputes in a civilized manner. Let’s put all the interventions we need in place so we can solve matters without war and genocides on Earth effective immediately.

 

Lets Return to The Peaceful Premise of the UN Charter:

http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/

 

Let’s have all nations of the UN Vote to declare an immediate global cease fire and begin working on saving humanity from all of the perils that face us. Lets be the first generation of humans to end war and create a future with out war!

 

In support of pacific means to resolve disputes I call upon all nations to submit a resolution to the United Nations calling for all nations to submit language and ideas for the creation of the following:

 ___________________________________________________________________________________________

Each of the above ideas can be implemented for civil society as well where all humans get involved in the peace process in what ever capacity that they can.

 

The list can continue on and on.  We just have to put into place all that is necessary so that we do not resort to war any more. We have to promote friendship between the leaders of the countries and amongst their peoples.  We can think of many creative ways to do this.

Please feel free to submit more ideas to this list.  I encourage each nation to make their own resolution to celebrate the international day of peace and incorporate its premise into their national policies.

 

Although the existence of the pact signed by all nations was not enough to prevent WWII and all subsequent wars and it is still technically still in effect as international law. It was agreed to before the UN came into being, thus all nations can vote upon the resolution in our time through the UN and adopt it unanimously again.  This time it could be recommitted to and we can add all of the other interventions needed to strengthen peaceful conflict solving processes and be used as a tool to save millions of lives that may potentially be lost by avoiding future wars.

 

Please see the existing UN Resolutions Calling for a Culture of Peace at:

We must more closely follow the principals outlined in these documents and really begin moving in the direction of creating the reality of world peace:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Olympic Truce is a sacred tradition originating from Ancient Greece that dates back to the 9th century BC. A Truce (Ancient Greek: ékécheiria, meaning "laying down of arms") was announced before and during the Olympic Games to ensure athletes and spectators could travel safely to the Games and peacefully return to their respective countries. During the Truce period (lasting up to three months),[1] wars were suspended, armies were prohibited from threatening the Games, legal disputes were stopped, and death penalties were forbidden.[citation needed]

In 1996, the Athens Bid Committee committed to reviving the Olympic Truce and promoting it to the world through the Olympic Flame Relay.[2] Three years later, the International Olympic Committee announced the establishment of the International Truce Foundation and the International Truce Centre in cooperation with Greece. The vision was to protect the interests of athletes and sport, and to promote peaceful principles in modern day. Each host city was encouraged to embrace the meaning and spirit of the Olympic Truce in the planning and staging of the Games.[citation needed]

Since 1993 all nations vote unanimously in the UN and make a resolution calling for a global truce and cease fire for the Olympic Games. There is a 6 week global truce planned for the Summer Olympics 2012 in London.  If the world can have a unanimous resolution voted upon by all nations to agree to a Cease Fire Truce for the Olympic Games and on Peace One Day each year on 9/21 we can follow the same process and we can also vote to extend the cease fire after the games and after 9/21 of each year as well for 365 days per year! We do not need to have a reason for a global truce such as an Olympics, humanity can just change their mind and declare that we will maintain a Permanent Global Truce and Global Cease Fire and act accordingly. Humanity can just make up our mind to do so.  If we must have an important international event going on at the time to warrant a global truce then we can expand upon the Olympic Games to have them continue 365 day per year.  We can add many more games, more categories of competitors, children, teens, seniors, and various height and weight and age divisions.  We can encourage many more athletes from around the world to participate.  Each day the event may be televised on TV and the Internet.  People may qualify in advance for the events.  All of the athletes that tried out to participate in the regular Olympics but did not make it may surely qualify to participate in these games and many more.  The events may be held in countries around the world.  Each city may apply to host the daily event for a two week period then the next city would host the next two week period.  Many events may be simple and not require the building of any new facilities.  They may just utilize the sports centers they already have. 

 

We can organize A Global Star Search where people from around the world participate. It may take place daily.  We may make Global Film Festivals that may be held daily where people submit their films from around the world and they are shown around the world at one time in a global celebration extending on the concept in Pangaea Day.  There is no end to the mutual cooperation that we can develop.  We can develop daily activities of friendship to help keep the peace daily.

 

Humanity must abstain from compulsive warring behaviors one day at a time, one minute at a time and seek to recover from this addiction before it kills all of life on Earth. We are making the environment toxic as evident by the increasing number of people with many diseases related to environmental causes. 

 

Humanity needs to take a fearless and searching moral inventory of ourselves and begin to make amends to all those we have harmed except when to do so would hurt them or others.

 

We may create a Global Family Reunion Party and begin to do all fun things together such as global international bands, concerts, symphonies, dance, parties, and most importantly stop fighting since it will get us all nowhere and only hurt us all.  We have to work together and help each other.  “Open Sourcing” is the way to help all humanity.  We will all benefit when we work cooperatively to save lives and the environment.  With new technologies we can do it but we have to stop fighting first or we may lose everything.

 

We must be successful at this quest to create a future with out war for our children and grandchildren's future.  If any generation could do it we could.  We have a global community with the internet and advances in sciences that can benefit all life on Earth.  Let’s use our wisdom and our technology to save life rather than to destroy it.

 

We collectively have to overcome all of our addictions that are underling these wars.  We are all part of the problem and all can be part of the solution even if we are not directly participating in war ourselves.  

We have to seek help and offer help.  We individually and collectively would benefit if we take an inventory of ourselves our nation and our world.  Let’s begin by saying I am sorry, please forgive me when we are wrong. 

 

Let’s give the idea of signing an international pact renouncing war, committing to peaceful resolution of conflicts and a future without war another try and this time lets make sure it is successful. Lets ask ourselves if humanity were ever to give up war how would we possibly do it then follow that plan and get the job of creating a nonviolent peace done.  It is not beyond our reach.  Peace is very profitable! Entrepreneurs, individuals, non profits and governments can provide many jobs in the field of building peace.  We have to think about how we can open up a host of peace industry Jobs to expand the world wide economy.

 

If human's can obey instructions from their leader and risk their lives going into a war zone to fight when their leader commands them to do so, we certainly can work to get the leaders to change their orders to give nonviolent commands instead.  There are 192 member states of the UN thus 192 leaders.  We can begin with the leaders and ask them to meet together in the UN to develop a plan to stop all war.  Each nation may submit their ideas and tell what they are willing to do to achieve this goal.  It is not impossible to do.  Lets just do it. Lets honor the leaders that refrain from issuing orders for their military to take offensive actions in violation of the International Criminal Court's Elements of a Crime Laws. See: http://www.icc-cpi.int/NR/rdonlyres/336923D8-A6AD-40EC-AD7B-45BF9DE...

 

Lets use the media, art, science, technology and common sense to motivate people to peaceful resolutions of problems rather than fighting, unnecessary killing and war.  We need intensive work with the world leaders with each being assured they will not be attacked if they do not initiate an attack against others. We can call all leaders into UN Global Peace Conferences directly to discuss with them a new way of governing, respecting human rights.  Together we can put an end to genocides and democides.  

 

Humanity has been at war for way too long going back through almost all recorded history.  Many people believe it is just part of human nature and it could never be stopped but I disagree.  It is a learned behavior, motivated often by profit, greed and wastefulness. I believe we can learn a new way of interacting with each other and do away with war.  Lets try together we can change the world. Lets create a future without war and show the future generations how it is done.

"It has been said the present is pregnant with the future" Voltair.  What kind of future will we give birth to?

Lets make all efforts to deliver healthy baby boys and girls that can survive on this planet without being at risk of being killed needlessly in war or lacking the essential resources to survive.  Lets plan for our selves and our future generations. Ask your self what you think it may be like on Earth in 500 years and try to make the future a great one so they do not look back on us and say what were you thinking and how could you have done this to this beautiful planet.

May god bless us all in our effort to end war.  May it be God's will that we are successful in this effort.

Let us adhere to the commandment Thou Shall Not Kill.

 

Please spread the word to as many people as would be interested so other people will be aware of this opportunity!

 

After reading the book When The World Outlawed War,  this blog  or any peace related information please write up your thoughts.

 

 Song writers may write a song about peace, artists may paint a painting reflecting peace, scientists can write about the consequences of war on the environment, teachers can teach about peace etc.  Everyone can play a part and get involved.  We all may learn more about what we may do to help.  Please watch documentaries, read books, study, learn, teach and do.  We must as a species become peaceful, sustainable and green! I hope we do it.

 

This is an open invitation to all people.  Please think about a plan of what you may do to help humanity get back on the right track to a GLOBAL TRUCE and A Cease Fire and a Declaration OF World Peace.

 

Please do all you can, no matter how big or how small to take a positive action to help in this effort grow.  People from all walks of life can contribute to the cause of global truce and peace grow since the consequences effect all life on Earth. We can implement many of the ideas listed above and expand on them to create similar concepts that can be carried out by the general population as well as an infinite number of additional ideas to achieve this goal.
