lay down your weapons

lay down your weapons and let us fight for that which truly matters.

fight for love by loving those who despise you.

for understanding by listening to those who disagree.

feed your enemies and forgive them.

give freely of yourself and your possessions, these are but temporary things and gifts from the universe that you cannot take with you.

by doing these things we will create the peace you have attempted by force.

let us demonstrate the things we want from others.

true peace is not created through violence.

it is a false peace based on imaginary power and fear.

the true peace comes from mutual love, respect, understanding, hope and vulnerability.

but love is the root.
