Salam. (Peace). I'm Leena Salim. I have been a pacifist for a long time. This violence in Iraq and the newest stuff with Palestine and Lebanon versus Israel is so awful. My heroes are Gandhi and William Penn. I'm not a Quaker but I admire what they stand for. Helen Keller is one of my heroes too, but she doesn't have much to do with the topic. I saw a great thing a few months ago. I am a member of a children's choir. We sing at a Methodist Church. I'm not Methodist either, but I love to sing so much that it doesn't matter. Anyway, we went and sang at the dedication ceremony for a peace pole. Has anyone heard of them? They have "May peace prevail on Earth" written in up to 16 different languages. It started with a man singing "Imagine" by John Lennon. Then, we sang "Like A Mighty Stream" and "Prayer for Today". Next, each person who spoke the languages displayed on the pole stood and said "may peace prevail on Earth" in his/her language. We had to repeat it back. We ended by singing "Let There Be Peace on Earth. It was one of the most powerful experiences of my life.

hi! thanks for joining our humble group. as you can see there's not been much activity in recent times, but I am hoping each member will advertise and try to bring in more members. I started this group in hopes that we Pacifists could come together and try to help each other and those who are not pacifists live a more simple, peaceful life and see through the differences that seem to seperate us on the outside. Welcome!
