I Vote for Peace
I vote for peace. I vote for listening to the other person before I speak. I vote trying to see things from the other person's point of view. I vote for counting to ten before I react.
If you are interested in giving peace a chance, check out Path to Peace. It won't hurt to look, maybe comment, possiblly vote.
Since I believe all things begin at home and one person can make a difference, I will actively support peace today. I pledge the following:
I will not call anyone an asshole today, even the drivers who cut me off or drive up my butt as I drive to work today.
I will not snip at my husband. I will consciously remember that he is a good man and let him know.
I will hug my daughter and refrain from telling her what to do.
I will not make snarky comments at work, I will listen to the opinions of others and validate their points of view.
I can do these things, really I can, at least for one day. What can you do for peace?
