Empowering civic activism toward a culture of peace.

Promote Peacebuilding in Just a Few Minutes a Day

By your presence on this post at this time, I'll assume you think peacebuilding is worthwhile concept. Maybe you think the Department of Peace legislation should be at the top of the Administration's priority list, or you believe the Youth PROMISE act is the best thing that could possibly happen to help reduce violence in our communities. Wouldn't you like to see everyone, everywhere embrace the concepts of peace and nonviolence? Okay, now prove it!

What if I told you that you could promote the peacebuilding paradigm without having to leave the comfort of your own home? No signs to make, no marches to organize and attend, no speeches to make. What if you could do it from where you are sitting right now, without having to spend a dime,
and with almost no effort whatsoever?

Here's the tip... Whenever you run across content on the internet that promotes the peacebuilding ideas that you like, give it a thumbs up on StumbleUpon, submit it to Reddit or Digg, re-tweet it in Twitter, share it on Facebook, e-mail it to friends or promote it in whatever way you usually promote content you like. Most authors make this easy to do by including a "Share" link somewhere on the post.

With a little more effort, you can help shift the global conversation toward peacebuilding by commenting on articles and blog posts, letting people know about DoPeace, the campaign to create a U.S. Department of Peace, and the Youth PROMISE act.

Sounds simple, doesn't it? But many of us are not even doing this on a regular basis.

Why is this important?
  • Promoting peacebuilding content helps the author of the content by bringing more visitors to his/her page.
  • Promoting peacebuilding content helps raise awareness about the different things going on to build a culture of peace.
  • Promoting peacebuilding content draws people to the cause, gives them an avenue to get directly involved and builds the community, .
As you can see, it doesn't take much to increase the "buzz" about this important endeavor on the internet, and everyone - yes, even you! - can help. I hope you'll join me and take a moment each day to do a little something to promote peacebuilding.

Good ideas. Now I need to get up the gumption to go talk to my (republican and a nice lady) state legislator who lives down the street about specific state legislation. I know the Peace Alliance has ideas I could use help on details & presentation. Also kick me in the butt to go talk to the state Democratic party chair (also a good guy).

So true, Ted! Even the 'couch potatoes" can benefit from this info! This, in its' truest essence, is the very LEAST that one human being can do to 'make a difference'. Thank you for this... it will motivate many, otherwise unmotivated, helpless minded individuals

Great thinking Ted! I'm going to click on the facebook button I see at the end your post right now. I always look for the "share" button when I read articles online. It makes it easy to share on social networks I'm a member of like Facebook and Twitter.

Seeking happiness is a bumpy road aggregate. Most of them are in us. It is difficult to know the guidelines to achieve lasting inner peace, and here try to find clues and resources to achieve that goal. I want to send with my posts, my group events and ideas that can serve readers to reflect on the path we follow, and so prove that it is profitable to our emotions. I hope this journey will help all of you, besides myself.
My initiative is reaching out selflessly supportive non-profit promoting, promoting and disseminating a number of important causes as aid to refugees, climate change, racism or the sharing of global wealth, my hope is that humanity as a overall progress towards peaceful coexistence in a world without wars and hunger, raising awareness and Universal Ambassador Peace Circle Universal Peace Ambassadors in Geneva - Switzerland, to promote and create the foundation for peace in the world.

Thanks, Ted, for the reminder. Passing out AFDOP cards to people whose bumper stickers resonate with peace, letting friends and relatives in other states know about HR 808 and asking them to ask their reps to get behind, and keeping it all in our prayers. Yes, and there's lots more, too. Mahalo and Aloha.
