I was lucky to learn at a young age that your neighbors can truly change your life, like you’ve changed mine…But now five years after becoming a pop artist, young activist and a traveling gypsy – as I have no residence – I have learned that in fact the universe is so wide and so enormous that we are actually, on this earth, all neighbors. The earth is much smaller and much more vulnerable than we all think.
So world, breed compassion. Can we put compassion above all things? Can we be brave enough to fight for peace with no fight at all?"
"We live to prove that cooperation works better than conflict."
President Bill Clinton
Another year has come and gone, and the day is finally here.
Today is the UN International Day of Peace.
I’m celebrating and honoring this day in two ways: (1) my colleague, friend, and brother Koffi from western African is being sworn in as a United States citizen; and (2) I will spend it with my Freedom House family, a group of truly remarkable individuals who personify peace. Let this just be the beginning.
How will you make peace today?
Let today be a gateway into a lifetime of peace. (Peace One Day)
the world is my village.
The Power of Words
“Change your words. Change your world.” SPEAK UP FOR CHANGE.
"The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?"
"Where the law of an eye for an eye obtains, in the end all will be blind. If we don’t learn to live as brothers, we will die together as fools."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
