Message for World Peace

"I believe that to meet the challenge of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for his or her own self, family or nation, but for the benefit of all mankind. Universal responsi­bility is the real key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace, the equitable use of natural resources, and through concern for future generations, the proper care of the environment."

I really like your blog. Particularly interesting what you write about the zapatistas, I didn't know about that. When I was in Chiapas last year there was no talk about any increased activity of the army and paramilitaries, it must have started recently. They really need our support (the zapatistas, not the militaries!), because they are doing a lot of good and important things. They are also a very important symbol for all indigenous people, in Mexico and elsewhere.

The quote from the Dalai Lama is also great, he is a man with a lot of wisdom...

As for your comment about the Zapatistas, I add something on its own comments site!
