David Swanson struck a nerve with his post about empathy.
Clearly many people are troubled by the inconsistency: “We are all France. . . . Though we are never all Lebanon or Syria or Iraq for some reason.” People want to give expression to it . . . and so they retweet this message. But: can they do more?
World Beyond War is going to start by creating a statement about how to address the violence in Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq — ways that don’t involve more war. We’re going to use your suggestions — especially your words about how you, yourself, are working for peace. Please add comments below. The more contributions we have, the greater impact this effort can have.
We will all be France — and Lebanon, and Syria, and Iraq — when we all work for a world beyond war.
