    Give Peace a Chance

    To paraphrase something Lennon once said, if everybody wants a TV, they'll get a TV.  If everybody wants peace, they'll get peace.

    An Old Peacenik

    I was born during WWII, and my father was a soldier. I lived in Korea in 1947 when the forgotten war was about to start. In 1950 I was 8 years old and lived near Ft. Bliss, Texas. We went to the movie theater on the base and saw newsreels. I was so upset when they showed...

    Conflicted Convictions

    I can firmly say, without a single doubt, that I am an avid supporter of pacifism - I despise the Armed Forces with a fashion, and have long dreamt of the abolition of war. However, much to my surprise, I've recently been toying with the idea of joining something like the French...

    War And Warriors

    I believe it is possible to be anti-war without being anti-military. I think I am anti-war because of my deep admiration for those who voluntarily serve in the armed forces of their nations (whatever their nations). Many, many years ago I proudly served in the U.S. Navy; and...

    It Makes Me Sad

    Whenever I think of mothers losing their sons and daughters, it makes me so sad.  I don't want any parent to experience that needlessly or for reasons that may never affect them in any other way.  And just the thought of another person dieing over differences in beliefs...

    The Sad Truth

    The world is full of hatred, pain, sorrow, and so on, but why continue it? I don't believe that violence is the answer to anything. Life is too short for worrying about these small "earthly" problems. Most of us will be in heaven soon enough with eternal happiness. May...

    Long Time Pacifist

    I have been a pacifist since the age of 20. It has been almost 46 years now. Been through a lot of crap. Did alternative service and 4 years Navy Corpsman (unarmed). I have been a healer since then. I made mistakes along the way, but I have not taken a human life.

    Is This For Me?

    My whole life I have been told to not fight people. I have been taught to follow the saying 'turn the other cheek', but I have never really done it. I know though looking at my past that all those times I got physical that I ended up hurting somebody or getting in trouble. On...
