WORLD PEACE - Is It Possible ?

Honorable Mayor Ohtaki and Council Members:
 
You may ask, why write about World Peace when it may, or may not, be possible.
 
I write, because it will never been possible, unless good people stand up and do something about it. Frankly, if the world population said "enough is enough" to its leaders, prospects for peace would increase.
 
Locally, you may say "it isn't our problem". Wrong ! It's everyone's problem as the slaughter of human life globally directly or indirectly affects us all. Afterall, the expression says "Think Globally, Act Locally".
 
If you don't take a stand locally, then you may wish to consider discussing at a future Menlo Park City Council meeting, whether you wish to actively SUPPORT those that do. Frankly, it's lonely out there standing up to evil. Taking it for granted "as a given" may only perpetuate it. Those whose lives make a difference in protecting ours deserves to know that we are grateful and appreciative for what they do.
 
If you agree, here are a few organizations in which you may wish to provide "49c of diplomacy" by sending a letter of support, or better yet, joining in their efforts, as follows;
 
1) MAYORS FOR PEACE
 
     Over 2,600 mayors worldwide have chosen to join this international organization. If you are not already a member, this group may be one in which you wish to support. Their website is: www.mayorsforpeace.org. Established in 1982, this international organization is dedicated for the promotion of peace. It was nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.
 
2) PEACE ONE DAY

      Started in 1999, this non-profit organization established September 21st each year as a day of non-violence, international unity and cooperation. In 2001, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously passed a resolution supporting this effort. The United States Senate also passed a similar Resolution. www.peaceonday.org

If this is important to you, then I encourage you to take the time to take a stand. Your life and mine may depend upon it.

Respectfully,

Jim Lewis
