FOR the CHILDREN
    PHASE 3.  For the Children (Constructive Phase)

    Women will insist upon implementing programs that maximize
    efforts for human rights and safety for children around the world.  
    Programs developed by NGO’s, civil society organizations, religious
    organizations, the U.N., and many other organizations have laid the
    groundwork and are the key to a new paradigm of humanitarian
    spending.  For the Children programs are the key to unity and
    partnership.  Programs will be created to interact between countries
    so that the example of working together stands out as a deterrent
    against war and animosity.  
    (See Examples of programs by Queen Noor)

    What is the long term goal of a peace initiative?  All my research
    shows that the common denominator between cultures and nations
    is the children.  In a “Call to Women,” the focus is on the movement
    influencing governments to make programs “For the Children” a
    priority! The relentless question will be, what are you doing for the
    children, and are the children your priority?   Therefore, the
    “Call to Women” proclamation states,

    “With respect, we, the women of the world are declaring that we will not allow
    war in the world and we will intervene with every NON-VIOLENT means
    possible to prevent it or stop it!  We do this “For the Children.”

    Working “For the Children” will bring everyone together.  It transcends
    boundaries of idealism, nationalism, religion, and politics.  The
    means to the end is women and nonviolence.  

    A GS of NV was designed FOR THE CHILDREN of the present to
    see a global “illustration” of nonviolence, as a metaphor for the
    future, a metaphor for helping others, as a direct focus for conflict
    resolution, and as a direct political focus in the future.  

    We will not stop until governments make programs “For the
    Children” to have food, shelter, health care and an education an
    absolute priority.

    It is an atrocity that the children of the future are learning the
    wrong thing!   They are learning violence begets violence and
    revenge and retribution are important.  The adults are making
    grave mistakes for the future.  Is that enough impetus for RADICAL
    change?  

    What are we teaching our children?  Will wars go on forever?  Or
    will there be some paradigm change?

    What do we teach the children when they are fighting?  We ask
    them to APOLOGIZE to the other and say you are sorry and state
    that they won’t do it again.  Within this method lies the strategy
    for world peace.

    The children need a chance to grow up.
    The children need a chance to grow up in peace.
    The children need a chance to see peace.

    Children will not grow up with hate,
           will not want revenge,
           will not know violence,
           will have respect for others.

    Therefore, For the Children, we will not allow war any more!  
    Peace activist efforts are not for themselves.  They are for the future
    generations.  

    A “For the Children” campaign will create a common bond between people.  
    It will create countless avenues of innovation and creativity.

    Quotes For the Children

    It is time, as Carol Bellamy, Director of UNICEF says, for the world and its leaders to
    “recognize their moral, social, and economic responsibility to invest in children - and to
    shift national resources accordingly.”

    Sister Joan Chittister, September 11th, 2004, at the Omega / V Day conference,
    “Women and Power” said, “The lives of our children, the protection of millions, the hopes
    of all humankind, wait again now for women, from opposite cultures, opposite tradition, to
    step over the line of political hatred to save them.”

    In an article entitled, Female religious leaders take on peace-building by Religion News
    Service, Dena Merriam, a coalition leader of The Global Peace Initiative of Women
    stated, “A strong coalition of women from religion, business and government can make a
    difference.  It is the children who are suffering the most in the current conflicts.  Women
    must come together on their behalf and demand an end to the violence that is taking too
    many young lives.”  Here-in lies the vision.

    Howard Zinn, author and activist, wrote, in describing national boundaries and war,
    “Should we not begin to consider all children, everywhere, as our own?  In that case, war,
    which in our time is always an assault on children, would be unacceptable as a solution to
    the problems of the world.”

    “In the year 2003, in the United States, over 12 million children live in poverty. And
    yesterday, there were 3,000 more children without health care-children of all races. By the
    end of today, there will be 3,000 more.”  Dean ________

    Yitzak Rabin said,
    “The peace that was born today gives us the hope that children born today will
    never know war between us, and their mothers will know no sorrow.”

    “A peace, which covers all children of the world, is my wish.”
    Shirin Ebadi, 2003 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient

    As the CODEPINK call at http://www.womensaynotowar.org states, “This is not the world
    we want for ourselves or our children.  With fire in our bellies and love in our hearts, we
    women are rising up – across borders – to unite and demand an end to the bloodshed
    and the destruction.” By Gayle Brandeis

    Gayle Brandeis, “When women say NO to war, we are saying Yes to so much – Yes to
    compassion, Yes to justice, Yes to safety, Yes to a peaceful and sustainable future.  
    Please join us in raising our voices.  Let’s recapture our original joyous, defiant
    experience of the word No, and bolster it with a healthy Yes that will resound through the
    ages, ringing in our great-grandchildren’s ears.”


    “As women concerned over the future of our children and humanity as a whole, we call
    upon women from all over the world to join us in our march in solidarity with our sisters in
    Palestine and Israel who are struggling to uphold the cause of human rights and
    international law and are working tirelessly to achieve justice and peace in the region after
    decades of military occupation”
