PEACE AND NON VIOLENCE INTERNET RESOURCE
From: pH Good firstname.lastname@example.org
- Dear Friends for global peace and non violence, I found
this massive link sponsoring internet sites worldwide promoting
peace and non violence. This informative link is connected
to the Ben Cohen's "True Majority" site.
- Please take the time to go down the list and look for the organization
nearest and dearest to your heart to either join, promote or simply show your
support with an email acknowledging their courageous efforts to stop wars. It
is each of our responsibility to humanely care for our
collective earth soul (anima mundi) in a non violent way. We cannot
deny the fact that we are one world and one human family -- and I, for one
am personally offended that our nations' (USA) LEADERS CURRENTLY IN
POWER are attempting to use our powerful military to violently escalate
a world war and impose a thinly veiled US fascist imperialism on anyone who
opposes or resists this US government military-political evil. As well arrogantly attempt
to deceive *we the people* that our government's hidden
warmongering agenda is being conducted in our national best interests. It
is my humble opinion that PEACE AND NON VIOLENCE will best serve
our national interests for long term peaceful co existence with
all peoples and tribes of the world.
- I sincerely hope I have not wasted your time sending this
information. If the links do not mmediately connect to the
site -- please copy and paste the site to renew their powerful
messages for working to bring truth into your personal domain for
- Please do not hesitate to circulate this list far and wide
and to add your own constructive thoughts on the subject-matter
of global peace and non violence. I would also love to hear your comments
too. Do not hesitate to reply back personally to email@example.com
with your insights and effective pro active assemblies to
raise consciousness to stop this insane warmongering by our government
- The most effective power is our VOICE --speak out and communicate
your truth as I am doing with this email to my online contacts as well
as to many of my life long friends. In Kind Regard and always in
Peace, Blessings and Goodwill, Philomena -- pH Good.
