Ideas for World Peace
>>RON CECCHETTI: What ideas do you have for creating world peace?
>>RESPONDER 1: For creating world peace I think that people should just care about each other.
>>RESPONDER 2: I work on trying to reduce air pollution but I don’t see that directly contributing to peace. World peace… treating people very equally. So that they don’t… so that there’s not a lot of tension between like haves and not haves and people who have a lot and not. So, it balances everything.
>>RON: Yeah, defintely. And…
>>RESPONDER 2: Otherwise, world peace… ideas to reduce pollution… Oh! Greenhouse gas emissions. To reduce that. Because if you have a lot of emissions it might displace people because their islands are becoming under water and then they’ll need to move and there can be conflict with that.
>>RON: So, what ideas do you have for creating world peace?
>>RESPONDER 3: International pen pals.
>>RON: That’s a really good idea.
>>RESPONDER 3: Right? It’s already a thing though I found out. Russia tried doing it with America.
>>RON: That’s cool.
>>RESPONDER 4: World Peace?
>>RESPONDER 4: Again, to understand the other side. Try to compromise and respect.
>>RESPONDER 5: It all begins within you. So I think as long as you’re taking care of yourself then you’re doing your part, you’re doing your duty, and you’re being gentle and kind and have good intentions. I think that’s like the first step, is being aware of what you can do for yourself.
>>RESPONDER 6: To not be so easily offended by every little thing.
>>RON: Ok, what ideas do you have for creating world peace?
>>RESPONDER 7: First and foremost, compassion for every human being on the planet, independent thinking, and accountability.
>>RESPONDER 8: Ideas for world peace… I would suggest, first and foremost, that everyone have some sort of inner exercise that they do every day. Some sort of grounding meditation because change starts with you first.
