Where will you stand on May 11?

Have you decided where you will stand on May 11? That's the day women and men all over the world are standing for peace for five minutes. Doesn't seem like much, does it? You can stand in your back yard, on your front porch, in front of City Hall. Some folks are standing in the middle of redwood forest preserves. Some are standing on mountain tops.

We are standing for the world's children and grandchildren, and for the seven generations beyond them.

We dream of a world where all of our children have safe drinking water, clean air to breathe, and enough food to eat.

A world where they have access to a basic education to develop their minds and healthcare to nurture their growing bodies.

A world where they have a warm, safe and loving place to call home.

A world where they don't live in fear of violence--in their home, in their neighborhood, in their school, or in their world.

This is the world of which we dream.

This is the cause for which we stand.

Go to StandingWomen.org and tell the world where you will stand on Mother's Day. (You can do so anonymously.) Together, we can make standing for peace absolutely Ordinary.
