Dear Friends, If you go to your local bookstore or bookstore website, you are more than likely to run into sections on war and military studies. Looking around for a peace and nonviolence studies section is much more difficult to find. Help to encourage our bookstores to make books on peace and nonviolence more accessable and visable. Do this so that the people of the future will be more likely to have studied peace and nonviolence. Wage peace, study nonviolence. May all beings be well. May all beings be happy. PEACE, PEACE, PEACE.
Dear Friends,
I hope this finds you in good health and happiness. The majority of bookstores do not have a peace and nonviolence studies section. One can easily find multiple sections on war and military studies both in bookstores and their websites.

One reason it could be, we have a society with people and leaders so eager to use war and violence to resolve conflict is because, that is all they have learned?

What if the president had read more books on peaceful and nonviolent conflict resolution? Would we be waging war on Iraq once again?
Please make it possible so our future generations can have more schooling and easier access to books on peace and nonviolence.

Do this by getting bookstores to stock sections devoted soley to peace and nonviolence studies.

Just think, not only would people be browsing in bookstores and run into many sections like: Military Studies, WWI, WWII, Military History, and The Vietnam War. They may also find sections on: Peace, Nonviolence Studies, Compassionate History.
How powerful would that be?

So sign this petition and support peace and nonviolence studies. Also write, email, or call your local bookstores and suggest they get a peace and nonviolence studies section today.

Wage peace, study nonviolence.
May all beings be well.
May all beings be happy.
PEACE, PEACE, PEACE.
