"Bring Peace Back into the Picture" Facebook Event

 

When was the last time you thought, after the birth of a baby in the family: "When he grows up, there will be peace and he won't have to go to war"?
When did you last think how your life would be "when peace comes"?
Perhaps you say to yourself:
"Certainly not in our generation, hopefully in our children's generation...maybe our grandchildren...
or maybe 'you will forever live by the sword' "...

We can blame the other side, the circumstances or ourselves, but the fact is that slowly but surely,
peace as an option has vanished from our midst and we've come to terms with the fact
that it's not possible, certainly not in the foreseeable future.

...And when there is no vision of peace, nothing will happen to lead us there.
Other visions and other aims will continue to lead us to more and more years
of conflict and alienation between us and our Arab neighbors.

We stand here together - Israeli and Palestinian women of the Forum of Bereaved Families for Reconciliation and Peace. We want to bring peace back into the conversation of Israeli and Palestinian society; and to then call on our leaders to act, in any way possible, to bring about peace in our region
and end the cycle of hatred and bloodshed.

To this end, we are beginning an initiative by going out to the public and inviting people to "Bring Peace Back into the Picture".


The first event will take place on Friday, 21.9.12, on International Peace Day.
We will be wearing white and will invite people to draw peace as they see it.
You're invited to join us and to spread the word to as many people as possible.

 

 

We invite you to put your picture on "Crack in the Wall", while holding a sign that says:
"I also want to bring peace back into the picture"
We invite each one of you to make similar signs, take a picture of yourself, and distribute it in Israel and around the world, in Hebrew, Arabic, English or any other language.

We must not continue to allow peace to disappear from our lives and our dreams!!!
For our sake and for the sake of our children's future - we must
Bring Peace Back into the Picture!!!
