“If a billion people were thinking about Peace there would be Peace in our world.”
John Lennon 1940-1980
The above quote motivated me to jump on a scooter and travel America, coast to coast, border to border. I want to create a Peace sign on the U.S. map because it belongs on the map. Our maps help us navigate our territory. I wanted to meet my fellow Americans and say, hey, Peace isn’t just the absence of war. Let’s think deeper about. What does it mean to you? Not the most popular thing to do while our nation is at war, but what better time, truly, for us to question our fate, our future, our core values and discuss how we can prevent future wars. Defining Peace is how we can create a wave of awareness in our world, the very first step. I don’t think Peace is just a nice, pastel warm feeling. Peace is happening, and I believe more Peace will occur when people define it, become it, and teach it. The first, simple step obviously being-Speak YOUR Peace. I am exploring how individuals and communities in America define Peace. Please help me.
