I'm standing ... are you???

It's just an idea whose time may have come.

There may be enough people willing to stand in silence for five minutes on Mother's Day to let others know we care for the future of the world for our children and their children to come.

I had to pass it on.

I'm standing.

We are standing for the world's children and grandchildren, and for the seven generations beyond them.

We dream of a world where all of our children have safe drinking water, clean air to breathe, and enough food to eat. A world where they have access to a basic education to develop their minds and healthcare to nurture their growing bodies. A world where they have a warm, safe and loving place to call home. A world where they don't live in fear of violence - in their home, in their neighborhood, in their school or in their world.

This is the world of which we dream. This is the cause for which we stand

Please stand with us for five minutes of silence at 1 p.m. your local time on May 13, 2007, in your local park, school yard, gathering place, or any place you deem appropriate, to signify your desire to bring about this kind of world.

We ask you to invite the men who you care about to join you. We ask that you bring bells to ring at 1 p.m. to signify the beginning of the five minutes of silence and to ring again to signify the end of the period of silence.

During the silence, please think about what you individually and we collectively can do to attain this world. And then, begin to make it happen!
