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.

Cow-Boy says Peace comes out from the Barrel of a Gun, wrong, wrong & wrong while Peace is happiness and progress between Life and Death as Nature/God/Allah has Gifted, Peace is by Truth & Respect!
Veteran Dr. A. Momin
The world must look to the youth of, not just Gaza, but everywhere to make a difference. We owe youth so much more than terrorism. They are our future.
I cannot express it any better than Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh: "Peace is not simply the absence of violence; it is the cultivation of understanding, insight and compassion combined with action."
Having worked for peace personally since 1992, the majority of those years spent in the Holy Land, I have never stopped believing that peace is possible and will be a reality one day, when all want it
I have been in the last 4 years lecturing for Palestinians about the Jewish Holocaust in europe.
i would like to introduce this Jobb to the elders showing its powe to bring peace

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.
To the Elders thank you. It has been long since we have awaited you. Soon your presence will insight a movement towards an official moral governing body to defend our right to peaceful coexistence.
Ian Paul McKenzie
we are all attached atomically to the universe-
we are bonded biologically to all life-
we are connected chemically to this planet-
we should be astounded,awed, humbled and understand we are tenants
please, don't forget that aged people can revitalise the other. A MISSION.

Brothers who do not remember their common origin shall one day maybe tomorrow find the path to their common heritage and be reunited through a new brotherhood.
Gandhi said "Be the change you wish to see in the world". The Elders are leading the way. Let us follow.
Elders I belong to FATA Pakistan where terrorist activities are on high point and we are on direct target of terrorist. I want peace and peace comes when the US Dollars stop to our region.
Men and women are both incredibly important to bring peace to the middle east. It takes both of us to make the world go around and we are falling down on the job. We must work together!
Like the wonderful movie "The Lemon Tree", we all want to live peacefully. Its just a matter of walking in your neighbor's shoes...and letting your neighbor walk in yours.

I would like to suggest that peace is not an end state, but the by-product of something else. What is that "something else?"
In our time, peace should not be a radical concept. Leading hearts and minds to believe that peace is the most natural choice will bring about lasting change.

We salute the ELDERS for now deciding to intervene collectively to resolve the Palestine-Israel conflict, which is the central geo-political crisis of our times.
Sadly, the meetings in Europe this week aren't leading to a breakthrough to halt Israeli settlements in Palestine and make way for the peace process to recommence. http://bit.ly/o9Cre

Thanks for being open and sharing what you are doing. It means a lot to global citizens to see leaders taking a public stand and involving us in their work.
It is time we put aside our differences and reached out to our brothers and sisters in every Nation across the World and worked together for lasting peace.
Don't give up, ever. There is more that links us together than divides us. We must all find our common humanity.
In South Africa we learnt that when you cast aside fear, forgive and move forward with courage: anything is possible!
*love thy enemy not just to be your friend but more so your brother,for he is*
i have walked kids along the hills of south Hebron harrassed and threatened by settlers for walking the hills of Hebron
You know there really is still a chance for peace and that chance will definitely increase if we each do our piece. So let’s make peace -- in our homes, in our own hearts, in our relationships, in our communities, in all of our dealings and in the world. Peace be with us all.
Stands for PEACE
Many thanks to The Elders. Humanity must understand that we are all the same. Believing in the same God.
The only way to consider a real future is through peace. Only when people relate to each other through respect and admiration will we know peace.
Peace is possible. Israelis and Palestinians deserve it and can achieve it. Ordinary people can make a difference. Make your voice heard now.
Fernando H Cardoso
If the U.S.A. would begin a policy of Loving and Giving vs. Fighting and Taking, we will see Peace Globally to include the Middle East.
Craig Davies Metteauer
There can only be peace when the governments of the world stop the war machine and stop making weapons of death. When the power of love overthrows those who love power, only then will there be peace X
