Greetings, I'm Duan and I am the owner of a "Consciousness Apparel " company, Skool Boiz. You may wonder why am I telling you this. Well, Skool Boiz got it's start fighting for peace. When I conceived the company the first shirt I created was one called "War is Peace" you can see it at, http://www.skoolboiz.com/warispeace.html. I first sold this shirt on the corner of Hollywood and Vine at the Peace Protest prior to the Iraq war.
We have participated annually in Peace Rallies/Anti War Protest since. In addition we have supported various organizations whose focus on "Peace" and "Social Justice" issues.
We have a variety of peace related apparel. If you are ever so inclined please check us out. Also we have full service screen printing, so if your group or organization ever needs shirts for an event please consider us.
"President Obama, through his successful campaigning and support of a clear majority of the American people, brought an end to an authoritarian regime with an eight year record of making the world a more violent place. This peaceful overthrow brought…"
"I also have a hard time understanding the reasoning. If it actually DOES spur him into more action toward peace, would it have been a good choice in the end? Costa Rica sounds like a good idea -- surely there are other persons around the world who…"
Obama and the Nobel Peace Prize? Wouldn't an obvious choice have been Costa Rica. The country created a Department of Peace. What a noble and loving act. They are only the third county to have such a department.The only rational I can see behind the motives of the Nobel committee is to pressure Obama to take action. However, with two wars going on, one which Obama wants to escalate, the other where he is hesitant to pullout, and treats of another with Iran make me cynical as to their motives.See More
I have just returned from hospital.I am working in the field of PEACE for last more than two decades. But slow realisation is coming to me that hardly anyone is prepare to adopt PEACE POWER. Almost every one is for VIOLENT POWER not knowing that only PEACE POWER can conquer every thing in life and the world.For this my two books 1)Peace Technology2) Peace TimeCalendar are unwanted. That is why I want to sell the copyright of my two books.The life and world is miserable today because most of us depend on VIOLENT POWER.All these social networkings are virtual as PEACE POWER has not given its due position.
I think in this life I will not be able to influence the humanity to adopt PEACE POWER as a tool of growth and development.I propose to retire.
Peace quotes for Sept this year... Please feel free to share these. If you would be so kind to acknowledge me and the Facebook for Peace website that would also be appreciated. Warm Regards, Karen

Encourage the children that the most important Homework is Peacework, Peace in our hearts, Peace in our words, Peace in our deeds. Show them.
The last great war is not between men and women or between faiths, it's the war on insanity - sanity is the path, peace is the outcome.
It takes as much energy to contain great excitement as it does to contain great hatred. Go easy on yourself, be cool - choose peace.

Mature emotional intelligence inherently reflects non-violence both personally and globally, and promotes warm connection between people.
Peace is a tension-free feeling in the body. Peace let's our minds wander towards love, and sees opportunity rather than pain.
A wise one might say there is no bad in the world just many opportunities to guide others towards compassion.
The "haves" (nowdays) are the ones with happiness, the "havenots" are sad no matter what their bank balance. This is THE most important social divide that needs a remedy. Peace is the way. xK
Thanks for the shirt donation Duan. Really appreciated. Yes, I would be really pleased to coordinate for next year - was starting to imagine what might be done for the 21st Sept 2010 - feels all the more important to promote Peace One Day as a central day on the planet for the peace message. Actually spoke with my mum this morning about talking with the local council here to develop the first "peace garden" in Australia. What about a virtual PEACE GARDEN? Anyway, plenty of time. Thanks again. Karen P b W U.
Love your work Duan, thanks for joining Facebook for Peace. Promote loud on the site with my full encouragement. Post your t-shirt album there with links. PS: Just a suggestion below because I love the original comment from you.
