Martin Luther King Jr dreamt about it…
“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Ghandi walked for it…
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” –
Mother Teresa is the embodiment of it..
“Peace begins with a smile..” – Mother Teresa
Madiba went to jail for it…
and WE are the foot soldiers who need to take their vision and turn it into reality.
Today as we celebrate AFRICA DAY, various organisations gathered at the Cape Town Civic Centre for the 6th annual Commemoration of World Peace – PEACE WALK.
The vibe was amazing, the energy invigorating and the message clear…
What do we want?? – WORLD PEACE!!
When do we want it?? – NOW!!
Who are we?? – WE ARE THE PEACE SOLDIERS!!!
I enjoyed the fact that this was a youth movement, many children from various schools were invited waving their flags and making their voices heard. I am sure whoever needed to hear the message has heard it….we now await a response, let there be PEACE on EARTH. We are done thinking small we want to share the PEACE with everyone.
AFRICA WE ARE ONE!!
CAPE TOWN CITY OF PEACE!!
SILENCE THE GUNS, WE CAN DO IT!!
MR PRESIDENT REPLY TO OUR LETTERS!!
After the walk the schools entertained the crowd with a battle of the marching band, the precision and dedication that goes into the routine is inspiring. I think this should be implemented in more schools and recognised.
“Real change in the world will only come from a change of heart.” Dalai Lama
Let us continue to spread a little kindness and make THE WORLD a better place for all.
