Screening: Peace One Day

A couple of nights ago, I attended a screening of Peace One Day. It is a documentary following Jeremy Gilley as he knocks on the doors around the world, asking our highest officials to endorse the United Nations day of peace. (September 21st of each year) He talks to all of today's big wigs: Dalai Lama, Kofi Annan, Oscar Arias.
Interestingly enough, the International Day of Peace has been brought to my awareness in the last couple of years, and it seems Jeremy had a lot to do with it. It is a truly beautiful film about how one person who has enough drive and passion can work towards making a difference.
He is currently on his next project which is the sequel to Peace One Day, which I believe is he working towards having a truly ceasefire day celebrated on the September the 21st.

364 days a year we’re sold crime, corruption, greed, fire, flood, sex drugs, rock & roll, jazz, blues, gospel, pop, addiction, fraud, fantasy, lies, religion, politics, patriotism, success, shop till you drop credit, insurance policies, 30 year loans, corporate slavery, fast food super size me life styles, competition, war and every form of distraction the media, government and wall street can conjure up.

Then for one day, like some kind of sick vacation we’re told of a distant dream called PEACE, after which your promptly tucked back into the tainted and stained folds of pursuing The American Dream of endless worlds to plunder, rape, conquer and save.

364 days of FEAR

One day of HOPE

There are a number of days like that, such as remembering Hiroshima, etc. Unfortunately, most of us have short memories, so we should consider staggering them evenly throughout the year. Better yet, have a series of days like this before each election in all major countries. For my perspective, just type "war around us" into any search egine. My antiwar web site will definitely pop up as first selection, perhaps also my much smaller blog.

It would be interesting to connect all of the pro-peace sites, possibly by having everyone join webring.
