This is a perpetual theme that deserves another visit.
This week, in many ways, marks the connection between old and new wars.
George Washington was born February 22, 1732. He was involved in a lot of going to war, starting with the French-Indian War of 1754-1763.
Watching a documentary this week about his keen strategic approach during his later Revolutionary campaigns reinforced the point that war is rarely the answer—even when one country fights for its own freedom from tyranny.
A war—any war—is simply senseless.
Moving the clock 240 years (2023 – 1783), February 24 will mark the first year anniversary of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Has anything changed on the surface of planet earth, we may ask?
And have we made any advances in the field of ”human beingness” as the world experienced plenty of technological progress?
So once again, let’s get back to basics—the need for an entire world to live in peace and fraternity, and to foster harmonious relationships with all the species that occupy our environment.
It is as simple, as basic, a right—for an entire planet.
And as we know, before it spreads far and wide, peace starts within. Just like a good ‘peace’ of candy no child can resist.
Let’s create a few more waves of peace this Thursday!
Gilles Asselin is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

The Enola Gay, the bomber that never needed to be sent out. The Japanese had already tried to surrender, but the USA wouldn’t accept it because they hand’t tested their latest weapon.
They seem to be taking the same approach in the Russia-Ukraine war today.
Yes, another senseless conflict where so many lives could have been spared ❤
It is time for the Power of Love to replace the love of power – ad vitam eternam.
I agree with you.. peace does indeed begin within.. ❤️
Thank you ❤ May Peace be with all of us!
