A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Jimmy Carter's Carter Center : The Forefront Of Peace

  • The Center emphasizes action and measurable results. Based on careful research and analysis, it is prepared to take timely action on important and pressing issues.
  • The Center seeks to break new ground and not duplicate the effective efforts of others.
  • The Center addresses difficult problems in difficult situations and recognizes the possibility of failure as an acceptable risk.
  • The Center is nonpartisan, actively seeks complementary partnerships and works collaboratively with other organizations from the highest levels of government to local communities.
  • The Center believes that people can improve their own lives when provided with the necessary skills, knowledge, and access to resources.

This video is in Carter Center homepage. I’m in the mood to cry.

I am laughing in here but still many people are unhappy. Carter, expand human rights diplomacy. He thought ‘human is important’.

Just how important the leader is!!! 

His thoughts and values is really really important.

Korea is messed up. I’m sad when I think my homeland.

“It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature’s gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever. – Jimmy Carter”

John Denver ‘The Peace Poem Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream’

John Denver

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE John Denver 'The Peace Poem Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream'

He is an American musician, singer-songwriter, record producer, activist, actor, and humanitarian.  He had attributed to the popularization of country pop and folk music in the 1970s, and also assessed that he lead the environmental movement.

His famous songs are “Take Me Home, Country Roads“, “Annie’s Song“, “Rocky Mountain High“, “Thank God I’m a Country Boy“, and “Sunshine on My Shoulders“.

“Country roads take me home~~~  To the place I belong~~~”  That lyrics still stuck  in my head.
But That song is not one that I’d like to introduce.
What does ‘PEACE’ mean to you? It is really important. 
This song maybe get you the answer.

John Denver ‘The Peace Poem Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream’

There’s a name for war and killing
there’s a name for giving in
when you know another answer
for me the name is sin
but there’s still time to turn around
and make all hatred cease
and give another name to living
and we could call it peace

And peace would be the road we walk
each step along the way
and peace would be the way we work
and peace the way we play

And in all we see that’s different
and in all the things we know
peace would be the way we look
and peace the way we grow

There’s a name for separation
there’s a name for first and last
when it’s all for us or nothing
for me the name is past
but there’s still time to turn around
and make all hatred cease
and give a name to all the future
and we could call it peace

And if peace is what we pray for
and peace is what we give
then peace will be the way we are
and peace the way we live

Yes there still is the time to turn around
and make all hatred cease
and give another name to living
and we can call it peace

It could be too abstract. Someone say it is too idealistic.

This is an imagination. But How would you see this in real life?

And if you could really good, right? Everyone must say ‘I wish I could do that’.

It is really like lyrics. PEACE can be achieved.

Be Good every day. 🙂

Where is the love? ‘Black Eyed Peas’

Where is the love? The Black Eyed Peas

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Where is the love? 'Black Eyed Peas'

A song made group a star. This group is in danger of going out of business. 

This song is a The Black Eyed Peas’s 2003 hit song ‘Where is the Love’

This song is remade in 2016.

Why?

Group Leader Will.i.am remake the song because he feel again a sense of crisis that happen around the world. Racism, terrorism and war is everywhere.

“Where Is The Love?”

What’s wrong with the world, mama
People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that’ll bring you traumaOverseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin’
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK

But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah

Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all

People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach?
Or would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love, the love, the love

It just ain’t the same, old ways have changed
New days are strange, is the world insane?
If love and peace are so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong?

Nations droppin’ bombs
Chemical gasses fillin’ lungs of little ones
With ongoin’ sufferin’ as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin’ really gone

So I could ask myself really what is goin’ wrong
In this world that we livin’ in people keep on givin’ in
Makin’ wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin’ each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin’ on but the reason’s undercover

The truth is kept secret, it’s swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where’s the love, y’all, come on (I don’t know)
Where’s the truth, y’all, come on (I don’t know)
Where’s the love, y’all

People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach?
Or would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love, the love, the love?

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m gettin’ older, y’all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin’
Selfishness got us followin’ the wrong direction

Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema

Yo’, whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity

That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ down
There’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
Gotta keep my faith alive ’til love is found
Now ask yourself

Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?

Father, Father, Father, help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love?

Sing with me y’all:
One world, one world (We only got)
One world, one world (That’s all we got)
One world, one world
And something’s wrong with it (Yeah)
Something’s wrong with it (Yeah)
Something’s wrong with the wo-wo-world, yeah
We only got
(One world, one world)
That’s all we got
(One world, one world)

So I want to ask you. Where is the love? Is it inside you?

Al Jazeera will make HWPL special documentary to report in over 140 countries

Al Jazeera

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Al Jazeera will make HWPL special documentary to report in over 140 countries

“Small but strong broadcast”

Founded in 1996 against U.S. CNN,  Al Jazeera is spreading around the world a voice of the Arab population in anti-American nationality, pan-Islamic perspective. Al Jazeera started to be known in the West through ‘war on terror’.

When is it emerging as a global broadcasting? Al-Jazeera revealed for the first time what it says is a new audiotape from al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

Although some media outlets in the West points out that biased to the al Qaeda since 9/11, looking at Al Jazeera they report objective and fair, and any forces in the world, unbiased independent reports.

Interbrand assessed Al Jazeera as the world’s most influential media brand in 2004. Following Apple, Google, Starbucks and IKEA, Al Jazeera recorded the world`s fifth-largest brand power in brand impact survey. Al Jazeera English gain 100 million households viewers, Broadcast news linked to the YouTube was to make the top 10 list and The website hits more than 60 million a week.

The motto of the independent, objective toward Al Jazeera broadcast news is ‘World  News, Local Viewpoint’. They are trying to act to match their motto. Al Jazeera is now represent ‘conscience of the Middle East’. In that news we can see How innocent citizens were suffering and dying in war.

Al Jazeera will make HWPL special documentary to report in over 140 countries.

This business agreement was signed in September 18th. We know that beacuse IGIHE reported on October 7th 2016.

HOW?

Cooperative relationship between HWPL and Al Jazeera started in Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) at March 14th 2016 in Seoul.

After Al Jazeera are deeply moved by Lee’s devoted peace activities, Al Jazeera has continued to interact with HWPL.

The purpose of this memorandum is to lead ‘World Peace’. How?  Two organizations worked together to rapidly deliver peace education and culture of peace to everyone, including women, youth, religious leaders.

What is DPCW?

Do you know ‘2nd Annual Commemoration of the WARP(World Alliance of Religions Peace) Summit’? Here in ‘Advocacy Forum for the DPCW’ They understand the role of each layer and discuss the action plan to present ‘DPCW’ to the United Nations. So that it can be established by international law.

Lee say“The Declaration that we drafted is a new legal framework that can bring about the cessation of war and world peace. Prime ministers and chief justices together with the National Assembly of each nation must acknowledge the value and principles of the DPCW and propel and support the development process of the DPCW. All of us who are moving forward to the creation of the new era of peace have to work together to complete our common goal of peace. This will be eternally recorded in history as the work of light to the world.”

“Civil society has to participate with governments in the codification and progressive development of international law. Indeed, CSO represent the conscience of Humankind and their voices are essential to ensure progress in the action taken by States within the United Nations. The DPCW provides positive elements to foster the dialogue and reconciliation among religions. Religious leaders should continue their work against the fundamentalism and the political instrumentalization of some religions. Women, youth and political leaders from around the world, are invited to join their voices to achieve peace and cessation of war as a binding rule of all States.”

2014 WARP(World Alliance of Religions Peace Summit)  is assessed at the greatest peaceful event of all time. This event participate with 30 countries head of state, 50 ministerial personnel, 680 religious leaders in 120 countries and 600 youth activists in 150 countries .

After that, HWPL have events to mark every year.  In this ‘2nd Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit’ people can feel authenticity of peace movement and they think it is systematical and emotional events.

John Lennon, Letters to the Queen of England to return MBE.

John Lennon returned a MBE medal.

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE John Lennon, Letters to the Queen of England to return MBE.

He is a member of Britain’s legendary group ‘Beatles’. John Lennon and Paul McCartney are assessed “They wrote the most popular music in rock ‘ n ‘ roll history.” the Beatles received a MBE(Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in 1965. This is exceptional for a pop at the time. John Lennon returned a MBE medal. John Lennon was later to return this medal with the meaning of criticism in the Vietnam war.

This is again emerging as an issue. Why?

A draft letter sent to Lennon’s queen has been found. A connoisseur of the draft this letter is up to 60,000 pounds. 

How?

The man found this draft in albums that he purchased at 10 pounds in 20 years ago. The price rose 60 times. HAHAHA many friends will go to Secondhand store.

It is full text.

To. Her Majesty The Queen

I am returning this MBE in protest against Britain’s involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam and against Cold Turkey Slipping down the charts.

John Lennon of Bag

Lennon’s values

We can say John Lennon is greater than the Beatles at some point. The reason why John Lennon is highly regarded is his strong values for social movement.

John Lennon’s most famous song is rightly the 「 imagine 」. This song is telling us to imagine a peaceful world without state and religion.

John Lennon think Gandhian nonviolence is the only way to transform society.

There is no path to Peace. Peace is the path.

On October 25 every year, we mark South Korean Dokdo Day!!!

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE South Korean Dokdo Day : 2016-10-25 "Whose?"

Dokdo issue is always talkative.

Who is right? Why are this issue so controversial?

The reason of ‘Why is it Controversial’ is that Dokdo is worth as much. It is very clean water and It has natural gas floor. And 50 Koreans live there.

Who is right?

So who’s right is really important.  But How to use the media always affects people’s perception. But Recognition and Fact can be different.

 

I’ll wait for your wise ruling. The important things is in the video. 🙂
