BlogBlast For Peace 2012 #blogforobama

I almost missed this year’s BlogBlast for Peace. I am a volunteer for the Obama campaign. It’s just two days before Election Day and the work now is vital.

Blog Blast For Peace 2012

A Peaceful World Vision

Why do I bring politics into this mission for peace?  I want a more peaceful world and believe that President Obama is the man who puts this issue as one of his top priorities. He has ended the war in Iraq and has set a timeline for the end of the war in Afghanistan.

I want a President who believes in peace as strongly as I do, who knows that compromise may be necessary and jumping to military action before all of the facts are known is wrong. During a speech to the United Nations on September 25th, 2011, President Obama stated,

“Peace depends upon compromise among peoples who must live together long after our speeches are over, and our votes have been counted.”

Justice For All

“If you desire peace, cultivate justice.”

by Juan Somavia (The motto enshrined in the foundations of the International Labor Organization’s original building in Geneva)

President Obama has been and will continue to work towards justice for everyone. Justice is all about being fair. Without justice there cannot be peace. One of President Obama’s famous quotes that he uses in his speeches explains his understanding of justice:

“I believe we have to keep working to create an America where no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name is, no matter who you love, you can make it here if you try.

What About You?

Even if you are not political or involved in the United States’ Presidential Election, I hope that you will work along with me for peace and justice. People may think that you are wasting your time toward an unattainable goal. But look back at history and think about the civil movements that began with a thought, a belief, one person, one small group and grew to achieve what others thought impossible.

  1. Love your post and thank you for the work you do for President Obama. He is a man of great integrity and I think the world of him. It matters very much to us Canadians who the President of the USA is and I am nervous about Tuesday. Your post made me think of a quote from Benjamin Creme: Without social justice there can be no peace. So true.

  2. Peace to you and yours on this Blog Blast Day and in every day to come.

    P.S. My vote was cast in an early mail in ballot for Mr Obama in Washington State. Good luck to you with campaigning on Monday. I don’t typically follow pre-election polls, because the final one on Election Tuesday is the only one that counts. But from what people tell me, you’ve got a good chance to turn Florida…or at least to make it super close.

  4. It doesn’t matter what your political beliefs are, as long as you respect others. And if you respect others, I can’t see how you can support anything but peace.

    Sorry to arrive so late here, but here I am at last 🙂

    I’ll put a link to your peace post in the blog “Peace Bloggers Unite” later

    Peace to you and yours
