THE STAND GLOBAL PEACE PLEDGE

THE STAND GLOBAL PEACE PLEDGE is a common standard for all peoples and nations regardless of race, culture, beliefs, history, or divisions of any kind.

 

By keeping this pledge constantly in mind, individuals shall strive to promote interfaith and cultural cooperation, and to support progressive measures locally, nationally, and internationally that establish sustainable peace and stability for all.

PREAMBLE

 

I agree that the pursuit of peace, the respect for life and human dignity is the objective of the collective international community,

 

I agree that the escalation of systemic hatred, anger, animosity and the motive for revenge has resulted in widespread destruction in the name of religion, and of non-faith based extremism foundations, in direct contradiction to the highest aspirations of the common people of the world,

 

I agree that war on terrorism, atrocity, and genocide has resulted in widespread military intervention in an attempt to counter further deterioration of international stability, and that the use of increasingly powerful weapons of destruction threaten the fabric of civilization itself,

 

I agree that it is essential that peace efforts move beyond military interventions and diplomatic relations to a new level of intercultural-interfaith dialogue and cooperation to achieve a realized consensus for peace on the grass roots level within the borders of every nation,

 

I agree that the golden rule, as a foundation for peace, is endorsed by people of all the world's religions, beliefs, and life practices, and is best interpreted as saying: "Treat others only in ways that you're willing to be treated in the same exact situation."

THE PLEDGE

 

As a member of the global community, I proclaim that:

 

1) I Will Foster A Belief That all human beings are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of solidarity pursuing peace and justice for all living beings, without distinction of any kind such as: race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

 

2) I Will Foster A World Where People Interact On A Basis Where everyone is entitled to standards of universal human rights and freedoms without distinction of any kind.

 

3) I Will Do My Part In Actions That Support A World Where everyone is responsible for the collective wellbeing of their fellow human beings, our earth, and our environment, without distinction of any kind.
