Wish for Peace: I wish for a world filled with hope, peace, and "real" understanding and respect for all peoples of whatever colour they may be. A end to war, so no more young men and women will die beforethey have a chance to see the dawn of the year 3000. To see a reaching out to the stars by a "united" world with the goal to explore beyound our tiny planet that rests in a great sea of stars. To 2000, the year of universal peace and hope for humanity.

Wish for Peace: I send a prayer to all who reach this wonderful web site that they might find peace in their own hearts. Starting there, peace can only spread like a ripple through a still pond to all those near and far to lead toward a world at peace. The best formula for attaining this personal peace that I have found is located in Philippians 4:6-7. "Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." In His love at the dawn of the third millennium in the year of our Lord, 2000 A.D.

Name: Barbara H. Geiger - President
From: San Diego- Tema Sister City Society
Wish for Peace: As we enter into the new millennium we celebrate a time of new hope for peace, a time to bring forward those good and honorable things from the past, and individual commitments to give to the future the best that we have to offer. Our wish for the people of San Diego is "Peace, love and happiness" in the new millennium.

Presented on behalf of the Chief Executive Officer of the Tema Council in the official language, English.

From: San Diego - Vladivostok Sister City Society
Wish for Peace: As humanity stands at the threshold of the third millenium, it is my hope that all the people of the world will take time to consider our mutual destiny. Where are we going... and how will we get there? Will we destroy our planet through greed and hubris? Will we fight great wars and use weapons of mass destruction in the name of ideology or nationalism? The third Mellinium will see human civilization succeed or fail. I believe the road to human savation lies through hope, love, and appreciation of beauty. We are alive - and we can act.

From: San Diego-Edinburgh Sister City Society
Wish for Peace: The San Diego half of our "twinned" cities is pleased to take this moment to pause and reflect upon how our association has achieved the mission of peace that Dwight Eisenhower bestowed upon all sister cities after the ravages of World War II.

Through our Society's 22 years of cultural, social and educational programs and exchanges, we have come to better understand and benefit from our differences and similarities. We have formed friendships and developed a high admiration for the achievements of each city's citizens.

War is no stranger to our two cities. Edinburgh was designed as a fortress, and San Diego became a military base. But, at the advent of this new millennium, it is fitting that we rededicate ourselves to setting an example by maintaining a high standard of programs which will further unite San Diego and Edinburgh. In this small way we will contribute to the pursuit of peace for all mankind.

Wish for Peace: I wish that people would not do stupid things to other countries and other relations. We do not need to disturb them unless they disturb us.

From: Yokohama Citizen, Japan
Wish for Peace: Peace comes from a state of mind. For the new Millennium, I pray peace will be nutured in the mind of every child as a little bud. When the buds flower, may they be linked with each other by their velvet petals to form a carpet of peace flowers unfolder all over the world.

Wish for Peace: Manifesto 2000 Peace in our hands! The General Assembly of the United Nations has proclaimed the year 2000 the "International Year for the Culture of Peace." I invite everyone, everywhere to join the international movement to create the culture of peace and nonviolence:
  • Because the year 2000 must be a new beginning, an opportunity to transform all together the culture of war and violence into a culture of peace and violence.
  • Because this transformation demands the participation of each and every one of us, and must offer young people and future generations the values that can inspire them to shape a world based on justice, solidarity, liberty, dignity, harmony, and prosperity for all.
  • Because the culture of peace can underpin sustainable development, environmental protection and the well-being of each person.
  • Because I am aware of my share of responsibility for the future of humanity, in particular the children of today and tommorow.

To join this peace manifesto, all you have to do is make a promise. "I pledge in my daily life, in my family, my work, my community, my country, and my region, to:

  1. Respect all life
  2. Reject violence
  3. Share with others
  4. Listen to understand
  5. Preserve the planet
  6. Rediscover solidarity."

Peace is in our hands!

Wish for Peace: It is said that we cannot create what we cannot conceive of. In the coming millenium I pray that we will all work to visualize a world were the image of peace is held in the hearts of all people.
