The Peace Gong should be the foundation to promote volunteering for peace amongst young people. Our philosophy is reflected in this poem of mine which we shared during the 10th anniversary of the International Year of Volunteers.

 

Volunteering: A noble act

 

See the destruction all around,

Look at the poor people lying dead on the ground,

 

Doesn’t your heart weep for the victims of war and violence?

Doesn’t your inquisitive mind question their unwavering tolerance?

 

Elders have done enough; let children take the lead,

Let the innocent ones rule who have no knowledge of caste, status and creed,

 

Let us volunteer to establish a world which is peaceful and lovely,

Where all the people are loving and trustworthy,

 

Look at the people dying of hunger due to famines,

Look at the miners blown up in coal mines,

 

Let us volunteer to provide food for everyone,

Allow the orphans of developing nations to breath freely and run,

 

Wipe away the tears of misery and hopelessness from your eyes,

Forget all the broken promises and lies,

 

So, let’s promise to volunteer,

To rebuild a world free from shackles of hatred and despair!
