At the end of World War I an armistice (truce) was called and soldiers not more than a 100 yards from each other laid down their weapons and the silence on the battlefield was "the voice of God" speaking to mankind. In 2011 on the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month bells will ring out across the world for remembrance of all who have suffered from war and for hope that the world will find it's way out of this killing mindset that has plagued us for far too long. Join us by ringing bells and remembering on November 11th, on 11/11/11 at 11:00am.

It is time for peace. We can create a peaceful world if we work hard and truly desire peace.
I hope that the war in Afghanistan will end and that peace will come.
This is a brief message of protest and hope. I protest the continuing war in Afghanistan as wasteful of human life, and I hope for a peaceful future for both Afghans and for an American people weary of pointless wars.
I'm writing to you from Bellingham, Washington, USA. I detest violence and abhor killing. Today I'm joining the millions of people who are calling for an end to war in your ravaged country. You are not alone; you are not hated or feared; we will continue to do all that we can to bring this war to an end.
