GOOD DAY! MAY PEACE BE WITH YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR NATION!

THE APPLICATION PERIOD HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JANUARY 1 2019 AT 6PM  EASTERN STANDARD TIME FOR THIS SCHOLARSHIP ROUND SO PLEASE APPLY NOW. YOU WILL HAVE AN EXCELLENT CHANCE TO WIN!

ANY APPILICANT APPLYING AFTER 6PM WHEN A WINNER IS ANNOUNCED  WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR NEXT YEARS SCHOLARSHIP.

I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE OUTSTANDING PEACE STUDENTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO APPLY FOR THE GOING FOR A GLOBAL TRUCE PEACE SCHOLARSHIP.

THE GRANT IS BEING MADE BY MICHELLE ROSENTHAL, A SOCIAL WORKER FROM BROOKLYN NEW YORK,  FOUNDER OF THE GOING FOR A GLOBAL PEACE ORGANIZATION AND BY STANY NZOBONIMPA, A FORMER GOING FOR A GLOBAL TRUCE PEACE 2011 SCHOLARSHIP WINNER.  HE DOD LOTS OF VOLUNTEER WORK AND WAS THEN HIRED TO WORK FOR THE GOING FOR A GLOBAL TRUCE ORGANIZATION FOR 2 1/2 YEARS. HIS FULL SCHOLARSHIP WAS RENEWED IN 2012 AND 2013. 

STANY AND I DID WORK ON MANY PEACE INITIATIVES,  OUR GOAL IS TO EXPAND ON THE CONCEPT OF THE INTER-NATIONAL DAY OF PEACE ESTABLISHED THROUGH THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN 1981.  THE UN RESOLUTION A/RES/55/282 WAS SPONSORED BY THE UNITED KINGDOM AND COSTA RICA. THE RESOLUTION CALLS FOR A ONE DAY GLOBAL TRUCE AND CEASE FIRE WHICH IS SET TO TAKE PLACE SEPTEMBER 21 OF EACH YEAR. THOUSANDS OF PEACE DAY ACTIVITIES AROUND THE WORLD ARE ORGANIZED TO CELEBRATE PEACE ON SEPTEMBER 21 OF EACH YEAR.

THE PEACE DAY RESOLUTION HAS BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL AND HAS LEAD TO THE EXPANSION OF MANY HUMANITARIAN EFFORTS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD ON THAT DAY .

HUMANITY STILL HAS A LOT OF WORK TO DO TO HAVE A GLOBAL CEASE FIRE TO BE ADHERED TO ON PEACE DAY IN REALITY.

OUR GOAL IS TO STRIVE TOWARD A NEW TREATY BEING SPONSORED INTO THE UNITED NATIONS CALLING FOR A GLOBAL TRUCE AND A GLOBAL CEASE FIRE TO BE AGREED UPON AND ADHERED TO BY ALL NATIONS FOR EVERY DAY NOT JUST ONE DAY OF THE YEAR ON SEPTEMBER 21.

OUR VISION IS TO HAVE ALL WORLD LEADERS COME TO THE UNITED NATIONS ANNUALLY AND SIMULTANEOUSLY DECLARE GLOBAL TRUCE STARTS NOW! GLOBAL CEASE FIRE STARTS NOW! MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH AND LET IT BEGIN WITH US! AND TO SIMULTANEOUSLY COMMAND THEIR MILITARIES TO DISENGAGE IN ALL COMBAT. 

NON STATE COMBATANT LEADERS WILL BE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GLOBAL TRUCE AND THE GLOBAL CEASEFIRE AS WELL.

PEACEFUL RESOLUTIONS TO WARS AND CONFLICTS THROUGH INTERDISCIPLINARY TEAMS OF NEGOTIATORS AND IN COURTS RATHER THAN ON BATTLEFIELDS IDEALLY WOULD TO BE EXPANDED UPON.

IMAGINE IF HUMANITY REDEPLOYED THE WORLD’S MILITARIES TO PEACEFUL MISSIONS LIKE THE PEACE CORPS TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE, ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS, DISEASE, STARVATION, NEED FOR MORE SUSTAINABLE RENEWABLE ENERGY AND HOUSING THE HOMELESSNESS, RATHER THAN COMBATING EACH OTHER.

I INVITE ALL WHO READ THIS BLOG TO PLEASE RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND AND COMMIT YOURSELVES TO THIS EFFORT AND DECLARE THESE WORDS: GLOBAL TRUCE STARTS NOW! GLOBAL CEASE FIRE STARTS NOW! MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH AND LET IT BEGIN WITH ME!

THEN PLEASE MAKE A PLAN AS TO HOW TO MAKE THESE WORDS COME TRUE AS A REALITY.

PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU TAKE THE PLEGE TO COMMITTING YOURSELF TO A GLOBAL TRUCE AND ABOUT YOUR IDEA AS TO HOW TO MAKE IT A REALITY EVEN IF YOU DO NOT APPLY FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP.

While working with a Syrian refugee-serving organization in Turkey, a friend’s younger brother was shot in a drive-by back home. Fortunately, he survived – but it made me realize the need for nonviolence work at home in Chicago. I moved back home and got involved in restorative justice because of its potential to address and heal violence in my community. My desire to continue learning about peace building compelled me to apply for the Conflict Resolution and Coexistence program at Brandeis University, so that I could learn more strategies and connect with an international cohort of peacebuilders.
