Petition to End War
- by: Edwin Purcell
- recipient: Kofi Annan, Secretary General, United Nations
We call up on the leaders of all the countries of the world to end the violence and bloodshed. It is time for war to cease and for mankind to move forward into a new era of respect and cooperation.
We, the people of the world, come together to tell the leaders of all countries that war on this planet must come to an end. If we are to survive as a species, we must stop wasting our limited reserves on killing one another and use them for our common survival. For far, far to long, we have sacrificed the precious lives of our fathers and mothers, our daughters and sons on futile attempts to achieve peace and prosperity through death and destruction. The time has come for all responsible people to say enough is enough. The insanity must end. All of the inhabitants of this small planet now speak in unison and you have no choice but to listen. We can, we must and we will put a stop to the slaughter. If you cannot lead us to a world where we expend our wealth and energy on feeding, housing and educating the generations to come, you must step aside. We will have many challenges in the days and years that lay before us. We will not squander our opportunities in an endless sea of blood. This is the time for us to become worthy of the name homo sapiens. Both our intellect and our intuition tell us peace is the only way forward.Sign PetitionSign Petition
