Peace can be created by a critical mass of people focusing their thoughts on peace or having peaceful thoughts. And when enough people focus on peace instead of war, on harmony instead of discord, on love instead of hate, the idea of peace will resonate throughout the world. This groundswell of thought will lead to actions that will achieve the goal of world peace and understanding.
This is why we are focusing on sponsoring a contest to inspire composers to create a new peace song that we can all sing.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the Songs for Peace project – from children to adults, from poor to rich. We encourage you to join us, and help build a worldwide community that resonates peace.
It is an obvious but powerful truth that with more people focused on peace, the greater the chances that conflicts can be avoided, and greater harmony achieved.
