Mr. Ban, Here is fresh idea: Peace for a day. Yes, that’s right: Peace for one day. Worldwide. Let’s start with a single day.
Have the nucleus 5 members of the UN Security Council issue a decree for global distribution, for all warring parties to lay down their arms and go meet the opposite side midway on the battlefield. Issue a World Decree to look the other side in the eyes, people you never saw or knew. Look at their faces, and, with a smile, extend your real arms and say, “HELLO”… for one day!
The next day, Time will create as it may…
Mr. Ban, you can earn the respect of the world by being imaginative, by proposing this to the Council immediately. (How can it be ignored?)
Issue the decree that all combative forces in Syria lay down their arms for ONE DAY and meet the opposing warriors face to face with an armful hug on the battlefield. Such a decree might create a general peaceful mindset, even if only for one day. At worst, the scum will surface soon enough, pleading for redemption for not complying.
Try it Mr. Ban, and change the human perspective upon peace and war, sanity and insanity, love and hate, and the keen difference between pain and joy!
The world is in desperate need for help from someone in your high commission. Change the world, Mr. Ban.
Readers, I implore you to urgently send a million copies of this blog to the UN Security Council, and wake up the World.
Sound crazy? It’s not. One beautiful green day. Anyone can stop, reflect, and cool down for a day.
Happy New Year 5774.
