As you know, since September 11 the world has irreversibly changed.
But it is the violence we face on our streets that translates to the fear and
hatred that divides nations.
There is an opportunity to transform September 11, 2010 into an anniversary of peace. A day when every person begins the process of reconciliation within themselves. It is a simple concept that ‘Peace begins with Me’: no matter what we do, the first steps to lasting world peace begin in our homes, our communities and finally, our governments.
‘We must be the change we wish to see’ – M.K. Gandhi
Please help us spread the message of peace and harmony. Last year, cities and towns around the globe proclaimed September 11 ‘World Peace Day’ as a method of drawing their community’s attention to peace. Please consider doing the same. If you would like more information visit http://worldpeace.org.au or email
I would also like to invite you to join in the global ‘World’s Biggest Hug for Peace’ by visiting http://worldpeace.org.au. The organisers would be honoured to receive your message of peace which would be featured on the website.
