Our species as a whole seems to be lacking a common purpose for focus. I sincerely hope we can get past that 0.1% difference between us all to realize how important that 99.9% commonality to be.

The conflict in the Middle East has been going on for far to long; and far too many lives ruined or lost; For God's sake it must stop now.

Please consider the world our grandchildren will share, and put aside today's political and economic pressures. Our grandchildren must live in the world we leave them. Our problems are irrelevant.

Thank you so much for the work you are doing. I almost didn't send a message but if ordinary people show their support rather than just think it your work might be strengthened.

Peace depends not on what we are taught from the outside, but from what we know on the inside. Everyone is born with an innate sense to be at peace. We can return to that.
