Today people all over the world are exposed to the fear of natural and manmade disasters such as earthquakes, nuclear weapons and the economic depression. In this climate of profit making and looking after only our own interests and own country's interests, I thought what is the direction mankind needs to take, what can I do as a single individual on this Earth?
Now is the time we need to answer the wake up call, to get over the apparent differences of country, culture and religion with a new perspective of understanding that we are all one family on board this spaceship Earth.
It is the time that our understanding is changing, similar to when Japan was a closed country and the eBlack Ships' from the US opened up our country (at the end of the Edo period 1868) and woke us up. We call it "the Meiji Restoration", this one will be "the World Restoration".
I believe that the idea of World Peace, as put forward by many people and organizations, including the United Nations, will be realized by our awareness that all the people on the Earth are of the same family, and this will be achieved through prayers of love and peace.
This is almost a kind of Renaissance,based on people's free will. It could be compared to the Italian Renaissance, the revival of all Ancient Greece's ideals; this could now happen in the United States of America, the Country of Freedom.
Our life span is short but I hope the future of Earth is filled with love and peace and lasts forever.
