Tomorrow the world will be observing International Peace Day amid war and violence in various parts of the world. There will be no exaggeration to state here that the world has passed through a very difficult time as during last few years thousands of people have been killed and millions have gone homeless. Now the people of tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border, who have experienced great hardship during this turbulent time, have the expectations that now they will be given peace by their beloved leader Barack Obama.

This is being posted so you have some time to join in observing the International Day of Peace, September 21, 2010. Established by a United Nations resolution in 1981, this annual event is devoted to commemorating and strengthening "our personal and planetary progress toward peace." It is a reminder of what individuals, organizations, and nations alike can contribute to the creation of global world peace.

I'd like to start with some thoughts by a world teacher who brought a spiritual perspective to global peace.

Resolve that you will love the world as your own nation, and that you will love your nation as you love your family. Through this understanding you will help to establish a world family on the indestructible foundation of wisdom""

"War results from selfish patriotism, which does not recognize the kinship of all humanity".It is because of man's ignorance of his divine nature and his lack of spiritual balance that nations are using engines of war to destroy one another. Prejudice is a principal cause of war between brother nations. We shall never understand ourselves or others unless we keep our understanding free from all clouds of prejudice.

These were the thinking of one of my teachers. But here I will present the sentiment of tribal people. Tribal elders have asked me to convey a message of peace to the American leadership. They appeal to the US president to declare peace on this International Peace Day. According to them, now the world cannot afford more war. We can resolve our differences through peaceful means. Please give us peace, Mr Obama.
The End
