Peace is for everyone, but those who put their hearts and souls into peace live with love, joy and unity which they will never forget because peace is like a blood. The world without peace is the same the body without blood. We should stop shedding of blood. (We should stop killing each other). Please let us start donating blood to save our lives and focus on peace in the heart of our mother planet (world). Peace is our blood and treasure for a better life. Peace begins with me because I always have choice, I choose peace. In addition to that I have chosen forgiveness as best one and donating blood as symbol to bring peace on before the sun goes down. I will never stop looking for peace till peace is shining like a morning star everywhere in the world. I will do anything for peace from bottom of my heart and depth of my soul, believe me in choosing peace has benefits. This reassuring that we are getting the best possible way, technical knowhow to innovative solutions. Justice is a key of peace. Peace is our priority gives us an equal opportunity to spend our time for a righteous and meaningful life to exploit our god given potentials, maintaining equality, say no against crime everyday and to remind us that we are the children and peace is our mother. Peace is our life forever and we probably discovered that we have the same hopes, desires, rights and needs as all people in this world. We believe that, this kind of the world will give us the right space to make our dreams come true and believe in good future for all people. Peace is not a fashion (style) or no expire date for peace. SHOULD I SAY YES? SHOULD I SAY NO?
