The press and media are getting involved as are millions to direct the world to peace and a clean environment. The following is a Cherokee parable to help make the point.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside of me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves. One is Evil; he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, lies, narrow-mindedness, inferiority, false pride, superiority and ego."

"The other is Good; he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. This same fight is going on inside you...and every other person too." The grandson thought about it all for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

In keeping with this here is an excerpt from John McConnell's Global Peace Blitz- "Mass media has a sacred obligation as the eyes and ears of the public to:

  • Feature solutions as well as problems
  • Headline cases of peaceful actions in the human adventure that reduce hate, fear, greed and lust.
  • Give recognition and attention to people and projects that eliminate pollution and poverty and foster peace, justice and the care of Earth.

Every radio and TV station should program a daily "Minute for Peace." A voice would state, "In this minute for peace let us join our hearts and minds, each in our own way, with faith and commitment to peaceful actions today and every day." This would be followed by appropriate music or sounds of nature.

In 1963 when President Kennedy was killed we ended the period of mourning for him on December 22 with a "Minute For Peace" which was broadcast globally. It carried the voice of Kennedy with words he had spoken the year before: "Never have the nations of the world had so much to lose, or so much to gain. Together we can save our planet, or together perish in its flames. Save it we can, and save it we must."

"Minute for Peace" support at the United Nations led to efforts in 1966 that ended the war between India and Pakistan.

On Earth Day at the United Nations there is a global "Minute for Peace," signaled by the ringing of the Peace Bell at the moment Spring begins.

With the media's cooperation, each year's Earth Day -- on nature's historic annual event, the March Equinox, will provide a great global holiday with world wide participation by people of every creed and culture. This will inspire actions for Earth's rejuvenation -- with peace, justice and prosperity for all.

Spread the word. We can change this global crisis into a new beginning for Planet Earth."
