One Day In Peace...January 1, 2000
CONVICTION OF THE HEART
Where are the dreams that we once had?
This is the time to bring them back
What were the promises
Caught on the tips of our tongues?
Do we forget or forgive?
There's a whole other life
Waiting to be lived when
One day we're brave enough
To talk with Conviction of the Heart
And down your streets I've walked alone
As if my feet were not my own
Such is the path I chose
Doors I have opened and closed
I'm tired of living this lie
Believing we're right when
I've never given love
With any Conviction of the Heart
With the Earth
With the sky
One with everything in life
If we only try
How long must we all wait to change
This world bound in chains
That we live in
To know what is to forgive
And be forgiven
It's been too many years of taking now
Isn't it time to stop somehow?
Air that's too angry to breathe
Water our children can't drink
You've heard it hundreds of times
You say you're aware
Believe and you care, but
Do you care enough?
Where's your Conviction of the Heart?

The Earth Proclamation
We are One people...
We share One planet...
We have One common dream...
We want to live in peace...
We choose to protect and heal the Earth...
We decide to create a better world for all...
We will do our best to make that dream come true...
We will change what needs to be changed...
We will learn, to love, share and forgive...
We are One people, we want to live and we will.
I, the undersigned,
aware that human activities are seriously endangering the fragile ecosystems of our planet,
aware of the widening gap between the haves and the have-nots,
aware of the need to redirect my energies to protect and restore the global Web of Life,
decide to begin right now to rethink my ways and values,
and change what needs to be changed in myself and around me.
I want the year 2000 a symbol for a New Beginning to be the turning point in the local and
global efforts now underway to create a better world based on equality, justice and a sustainable
planet a world in which Peace on Earth prevails.
Understanding that we are all individually responsible for the kind of future we will create for our
children and for countless generations to come, I will participate in initiatives, locally and globally, to
transform our world and protect this Jewel of Life we call Earth.
I agree with this Earth Proclamation and personally commit myself to do all that I can to spread it
throughout the world and help make our shared dream of Peace, Love and Harmony on Earth
