A friend shared this with me and I thought some of you might want to join in-what a beautiful idea!
One World in One Week We want to break all borders!

One world in one week
Dear friends and peace-makers of the world,
I used to think that tiny actions were an unproductive waste of time.
Every tiny, negligible action for change is beautiful and valuable.
Heres a tiny action Id ask you to consider taking to encourage the 99% of 30 million ordinary Afghans whose voices are not heard by anyone.
Please help Abdulhai and the Afghan Peace Volunteers find peace-loving friends from each and every one of the 195/196 countries of the world, friends who are impatient for a better world!
One world in one week
The Afghan Peace Volunteers are tired of rich and powerful politicians making unjust deals over their future, as President Karzai and President Obama did in Washington D.C. this past week.
They emulate Gandhi in his Salt March through this symbolic but person-to-person dream, hoping that when 195/196 friends have extended their hands in solidarity, they can say, With our hands of friendship, we will shake the foundations of the world.
We want to break all borders!
Abdulhai and the Afghan Peace Volunteers
