  1. The average person in the United States is not involved in a peace movement! Why? Because the peacemakers in the United States are not coordinated! That is why we have criminal behavior everywhere! We live in a violent culture! The peacemakers in the United States are all over the place, trying to do everything. They need the likes of the Madison Avenue ‘Mad Men’ to help the people establish a new national approach/strategy/campaign for peace! The peace symbol does not stand for anything anymore! What’s wrong with us??? We have to redefine peace in our country or continue down the road of violence. You know that! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to send this message.
