Our life experiences are built on having clear intentions in thoughts, words and actions. Not only would a group of aliens from another world be mystified after watching our civilization for a period of time, but we are also equally mystified. Our thoughts, word and actions are not in congruence. We on occasion speak of peace but just follow to see what the aliens from another world would see:

We carry guns to feel safe.
Our governments begin and end in revolution.
We watch endless hours of violence on televisions.
We buy violent video games for our children to play.
Our most prized award – The Nobel Peace Prize – has an exploding stick of dynamite on its reverse side.
It will take the combined thoughts, words and actions of a multitude to begin to create a wave of change.
Join with me and others around the world as we agree to extend peace at noon each day by saying “Peace be with you, and peace be with the world.”
