I would like to explain what peace is and how you and I can be role-models for others. In my, and I'm sure in many other people minds, peace is not just the absence of war, it is when we all care for and share with each other. But there is so much more to it than that. That is just the basic stuff they teach you in kindergarten.

To have a peaceful world we need to treat others the way that we want to be treated. It is all very simple really when you think about it, but it is a lot harder to do. If you have thought of something mean or nasty about another person, why say it? It is not real until you do so. Saying something nasty is already sending negative energy into to the world. What if everybody did that? You can't have a peaceful world with the whole lot of negative energies floating about. It all sounds a bit strange the first time you hear it but it does make sense if you take the time to understand it.

Have you ever heard someone saying something nasty about someone else? I know I have and to be honest, I've done it too. But how horrible do you or the person you've heard about feel after this even if it is not to their face? It is a bit like dominos. Have you ever heard of that happening at school or work? It always gets to that particular person somehow. Whether it's through other people or your body language, all the same it is making the person feel really horrible.

And sometime or another they will say the same about you. If everyone is like this it will not be a peaceful world at all. Have you ever heard that saying, "If you have nothing nice to say, do not say anything at all?" What if we said lots of nice things about people and helped each other and shared things with each other, then it would send out good energy causing people to be nice to you back.

I bet you have been told this lots of times. This does not only apply to people but different countries being nice to each other. This would stop wars and all sorts of terrible things that are happening around us this very moment. This does not just apply to countries; it also applies to our environment. If we look after our environment there will be no global warming and no green house gas emissions, and in other words the world will be nice to us.

But as I said before it is very hard to do this. So if we all just did a few of those things we would have good relationships with people from all over the world and the environment. For me that's quite a hard thing to do, but I am always trying my best to make the world a better place.

What is a role-model? I think a role-model is someone that others follow. But if we are doing the wrong thing and others are following, then it will create a very horrible world, so if we do the right thing others may follow our example.

Every time you are about to say something mean or push another person, or say something behind someone's back I hope you will think twice before doing so. Because you are not just affecting yourself and that other person, you are affecting the whole world!
