Dear GENI Friend,
World Peace it's something we all desire,
yet oftentimes seems so far away. The headlines and
TV news stories
are constantly reminding us of the strife in so many
The GENI Initiative is about peace on the planet.
First, we offer the perspective from outer space
by astronaut Russell Schweickart:
When you go around
the Earth in an hour and a half, you begin to recognize
that your identity is with the whole thing. And
that makes a change.
You look down there and you can't imagine
how many borders and boundaries you cross, again
and again and again, and you don't even see them.
There you are hundreds of people in the
Middle East killing each other over some imaginary
line that you're not even aware of, that you can't
see. And from where you see it, the thing is a
whole, and it's so beautiful. You wish you could
take one person from each side of the various
conflicts, and say,
at it from this perspective. Look at the that.
We are blessed that one of our Honorary Advisors is Robert
Muller, Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations
(retired), who served the UN for 40 years. He's a warrior
for peace and has supported GENI for many years. Several
excerpts from his new book
Ideas are attached where he has strongly
endorsed this strategy for peace and sustainable development.
Please use these statements in your conversations
with others. Many people hold Robert Muller in the
highest esteem and will listen to his recommendations.
Your continued support and speaking makes this idea
real in the world. Thank you for helping us make peace
on the planet.
In partnership for the planet,
p.s. Robert Muller also forwarded the excerpt from "Visions
of a Better World", where UK Scientist Neil Shendge
states his endorsement for the global grid using renewable
resources. Where could you publish these and your own vision
for a better world?
